Maxime Beaussire (25-1-1) won the vacant EU 154 lb title on Friday night in Calais with a one punch second round knockout over Joffrey Jacob (16-1-1) in a heated all French matchup. Beaussire landed with a right hook and it was all over.
Beaussire is now trained by former EBU champ Frank Nicotra and is now back on track after an upset loss to Zakaria Attou earlier this year.
IBO light heavyweight champ Igor Mikhalkin (20-1) could be defending the title on December 2 in Le Cannet (France) against Mickael Diallo (16-0-2). Posters for the fight can already be found on the internet but according to Mikhalkin´s promoter Erol Ceylan contracts are not yet signed.
Either way it´s an exellent matchup with the slick boxing of Mikhalkin vs the hard punches from Diallo.
Mikhalkin 4-0 in French rings and 7-0 in total against French fighters.
Croatian light heavyweight prospect Marko Calic (4-0) has been signed up by Swedish promoter Kamran Kabinejad and makes his debut in Orebro November 25 against Ukrainan Yevheniy Chumachenko (7-2).
Topping the bill at Tegelbruket in Orebro is heavyweight Pezhman Seifkhani, 6-0 and back after a serious arminjury, and he takes on Italian Paolo Iannucci (3-0).
Former world champion Guillermo Jones (40-3-2, 30 KOs) is scheduled to return to the ring for the first time since last July, as he takes on Ytalo Perea (10-2-2) on November 18 at Hotel Jaragua in Santo Domingo.
Jones was last in action back in July of 2016, when won a majority decision over Garrett Wilson. It will be the third fight since stopping Denis Lebedev in May of 2013. A rematch was canceled after Jones tested positive for a banned substance and then suspended. He would not fight again until November 2015.
