Huck vs Garay, Murat vs Campillo Clash, Helenius, More

By Per Ake Persson

It hasn't been confirmed by Sauerland but figosport.de broke the news, and Argentinian sources confirm, that former WBA light heavyweight champ Hugo Hernan Garay will challenge WBO cruiserweight king Marco Huck on July 16 in Germany.
 
It will be Garay´s fourth fight in Germany where he lost two controversial decisions to Zsolt Erdei in fights for the WBO title and then defended the WBA belt he won later against Juergen Braehmer - in all three fights Garay showed relentless stamina and agression and he was very impressive in his non-stop attacks.
 
It all fell apart in 2009 when Garay lost to Gabriel Campillo and then got stopped by Chris Henry - losses put down on bad training discipline and problems making 175. Hugo has sinced moved up to cruiser but doesn´t appear to be the same force as he once was.
 
There is also no official confirmation from Sauerland in regards of Sergey Liakhovich vs Robert Helenius. The fact is, Sauerland General Manager Chris Meyer would only confirm that they are negotiating with Liakhovich. However,  that end the deal appears to be done or at least that's the word from Team Liakhovich. The problem - if any - is reportedly that Helenius hasn't signed the contract.
 
More Sauerland news: Light heavyweight Karo Murat, IBF I/C champ, will fight an IBF eliminator against Spaniard Gabriel Campillo, reports Pedro Garcia at boxeodirecto. Rimer Boxe in Spain will try to get the fight to Madrid for a showdown in September. There are plans for a tune up for Campillo July 8 in Barcelona - a show he will headline along with lightweight Petr Petrov.

Would be nice if Campillo got the Murat fight in Spain since they last fought in Germany. Can't see Campillo losing at home. It is good that Huck stays busy but a lot of his fights are one-sided setups. Garay…
