By Per Ake Persson

Newly crowned EU middleweight champ Jack Culcay impressed in stopping Adasat Rodriguez this past weekend and tells BILD that he has his eyes set on the the WBA, IBO, WBC, middleweight champion, Gennady Golovkin - but not until next year.

Culcay, a former WBA champ at 154,  feels stronger at middleweight and more powerful.

"El Toro" Rodriguez is normally quite durable and not an easy man to stop.

Swedish heavyweight Otto Wallin, 20-0, has relinquished the EU title he won in April with a win over Adrian Granat. Wallin is now longer under contract with Team Sauerland.

What is next? Well, some rumors point towards the US. Wallin is trained by Joey Gamache and is a well schooled, smart southpaw. The minus might be a lack of size and punching power.

Official challenger is Robert Helenius and he will face the highest ranked suitable contender.
