Gassiev-Wlodarczyk Update, Arslan Back on Eubank-Yildirim

By Per Ake Persson

It´s not official yet but it appears that Murat Gassiev´s defense of the IBF cruiserweight title against Krzystof Wlodarczyk will go ahead on October 21 in Newark, NJ. This is also the final of the four  quarterfinals in the World Boxing Super Series Tournament at cruiserweight.
...

Former WBA cruiserweight king Firat Arslan (40-8-2) will be featured on the undercard of Chris Eubank Jr. vs Avni Yildirim on October 7 in Stuttgart. Arslan, closing in on 47, takes on Mauricio Barragan (15-2). Arslan is just like Yildirim, of Turkish descent, but has been living in the Stuttgart region for a long time now and has a strong following.

Also on the bill is 18-year old super middleweight Leon Bauer (12-0).

45-year old Lolenga Mock goes for his tenth straight win on October 7 in Copenhagen when he takes on 41-year former WBA super middle veteran Manny Siaca, who lost his title to Mikkel Kessler back in 2004. Siaca´s last fight dates back to 2014 but he was in training for a world title fight earlier this year against Renald Quinlan but the fight fell through when Quinlan was injured. His record stands at 25-8.

Mock lost a close call to World Boxing Super Series participant Erik Skoglund in 2013 but made a full scale comeback late 2015 and have since racked up nine good wins over solid opponents such as Luke Blackledge, Dereck Edwards, Derrick Findley and Patrick Mendy.

Should all go well against Siaca Mock is to fight again November 11.
