Macklin-Gevor, Dimitrenko-Sosnowski, Konecny-Bayram

By Per Ake Persson

As previously reported, Armenian-German Khoren Gevor gets a surprise chance in a WBA eliminator at middleweight against Matthew Macklin on April 16 in Manchester. Gevor was until two days ago in training in Amsterdam for an eight-rounder at super middleweight in Muenster on March 26, which now is off. Khoren, 31-5, has challenged for three world titles already and was a controversial loser to Felix Sturm in 2009. Last time out he lost to Dimitri Sartison for the WBA's "regular" super middleweight title. Gevor will continue to train in Amsterdam. Exactly where a WBA eliminator takes a fighter in a weight division with three WBA champions is a little bit unclear but Macklin vs Gevor is an exciting matchup.
 
EBU jr middleweight champ Lukas Konecny now has French veteran Husseyn Bayram as his mandatory challenger. Bayram replaces Ryan Rhodes. The EBU have set March 28 as deadline for purse bids or agreements.

Universum finally announced the show in their gym in Hamburg on March 26 late. Previously tabloid Bild Zeitung and the management of WBA, WBO and WIBF female flyweight champ Susi Kentikian, announced that she is defending her titles on this show. Kentikian has a book out on her life called "Mir wird nichts geschenkt". Headlining is EBU heavyweight ruler Aleksander Dimitrenko in his defence against Pole Albert Sosnowski. No undercard has been announced.
 
As previously reported Sauerland´s TV 2 Fight Night will now feature WBA, WBC and WBO female welterweight champ Cecilia Braekhus defending her titles against Jill Emery. Hard-punching super middleweight Rudy Markussen is again sidelined with an injury and the card this evening will now feature combacking jr. middleweight Reda Zam Zam, who replaces Ahmed Kaddour. Zam Zam takes on Finland´s Mika Joensuu, who steps in for Kamran Kabinejad. The winner will fight the winner of the Christian Bladt vs. Cliff Soukka clash. Middleweight Patrick Nielsen headlines and faces Brit Gary Boulden.
 
Hungarian promoter Felix Racz is step by step getting back into boxing after his comeback last year. Felix Promotion now have WBO European light heavyweight champ Tamas Kovacs, Szabolcs Pintye and Andres Meszaros under contract.
 
Rimer Boxe and Tundra join forces for an interesting small hall show in Navalcarnero (Madrid) March 25 featuring new faces and experienced journeymen. In the headliners jr. welterweight Ruben Nieto faces Alex Bone Palma. Lightweight Petr Petrov is in against Moises Castro and jr middleweight Dani Perez fight Joaquin Carnero.

Dimitrenko the clown, hope Sosnowski finishes him off.

I hope Gevor will pull this one out..He deserves to be a title holder, especiall after his controversial loss against Sturm, which was nothing but rubbery
