By Per Ake persson

The show is on for March 18! The Swedish Martial Arts Delegation have today approved application for longer distance (than the standard 12 minutes that is) for the main fights for EC Boxing´s Rumble in Malmoe show.

Adrian Granat vs Alexander Dimitrenko is thus indeed on for 12x3. Sven Fornling vs Arijan Sheirifi is on for 10x3 and Igor Mikhalkin vs Yvegeni Makhteienko is on for 8x3.

MAD have also approved Fatih Keles vs Krzystof Szot over 6x3. However, Keles, a talented welterweight will instead fight in Istanbul (Turkey) on this day. Headlining that show in Turkey is 45-year old former WBA cruiser champ Firat Arslan.


MK Event´s big show March 31 is now on for Paris. Cruiserweight and two time WBA title challenger Youri Kalenga (22-3) co-headline the show along with bantamweight Nordine Oubaali (11-0). Opponents for the two are to be announced.

German heavyweight Tom Schwarz (17-0 and reigning WBC and WBO Youth champ) is in against Croatian Ivica Bacurin (25-10-1, once a decent prospect at cruiserweight and now a solid journeyman) in Prague (Czech Republic) March 11.

Super welterweight Stepan Horvath (17-5) take on Arthur Herrmann (17-2) for the vacant WBO Euro title in the headliner.


18-year old super middleweight Leon Bauer (10-0) faces Georgian Soso Abuladze (boxrec have him as 10-1-1) on the undercard to Culcay vs Andrade on March 11 in Ludwigshafen. Bauer fights in his hometown and have according to a German press release from Sauerland Event sold a 1000 tickets on his own.

Correction: Hassan N´Dam vs Ryota Murata is for the vacant WBA regular middleweight title and not a defence by N´Dam of the WBA interim title he won last time out.

I promise that HW fight in Sweden won't need 15 rounds. Granat will KO Dimitrenko within 5

[QUOTE=Clegg;17487627]So as soon as GGG-Jacobs are set to fight these ****s make H'Dam a full champ. No doubt gonna find a new interim champ to crown before long as well. I can't wait for Golovkin-Jacobs but I guess the winner…
