Mario Daser vs. Ola Afolabi Set For May 19 in Germany

By Per Ake Persson

EC Boxing and Mario Daser, professional boxer and  successful businessman, join forces for a big dinner show at the Hamburg Arena in Hamburg, Germany, on May 19. In the main event Daser, 12-0, will take on former IBO world champion Ola Afolabi (22-5-4).

Afolabi´s last fight was early last year when he lost to Marco Huck in their fourth fight (Ola went 0-3-1 but looked like a winner in at least one of the fights) and then announced his retirement but is now back. For Daser "Kryptonite" Afolabi represent a big step up in class.

Also on the bill is heavyweight Christian Hammer (21-4), light heavy Karo Kurat (30-3-1) and super welter Sebastian Formella (most likely 14-0 after Saturday´s fight in Malmoe).

IN OTHER NEWS: Dilly Singh knows what he’s getting himself into as he prepares to battle for a belt when professional boxing is back at the Venue in Birmingham next month.

Unbeaten Singh goes for glory in just his fourth paid contest when he takes on Josh Burke in an eight-round clash for the vacant British Challenge cruiserweight title.

The two headline BCB Promotions’ Heavy Artillery show on Friday, 28th April at the Edgbaston-based venue.

Singh, from Coventry, is protecting his ‘0’ while Burke is looking to steer his ledger of two victories and two defeats in a winning direction.

The two are no strangers to each other, having sparred together in the past but there will be no holding back when they touch gloves this time.

The Indian-born Singh is unmoved by the step up in the distance, either, having reeled off three points successes without reply but all four-rounders.

He shared a training ring with Ovill McKenzie, too, before the British and Commonwealth champion withdrew from an IBO world title fight with Marco Huck and retired on health grounds.

The sweet science is still relatively new to Singh, who only had a handful of amateur bouts for Willenhall Boxing Club after initially taking up kickboxing. 

He trains at the Red Corner gym, under Dean Edwards and Paul Hudson. The 27-year-old is keen to rack up his achievements quickly, with Burke standing in the way of his first strap.
