Malignaggi vs. El Mousaoui in Line For EBU Clash, Bundu Stripped

By Per Ake Persson

Former IBF light heavyweight contender Karo Murat (29-3-1) takes on unheralded Czech / Ukrainan Yevgeni Makhteienko (8-4) on EC Boxing´s show September 17 in Goeppingen (Germany) with the vacant WBA International title at stake.

Makhteienko holds some good wins on the road against the likes of then undefeated Sven Fornling and Alexander Hagen and is a dangerous puncher.

At the same time the heavyweight clash between Christian Hammer and Timur Stark / Musafarov is off the bill due to a change in the plans for Hammer.
