Mariusz Wach Out of EBU Title Clash, Erkan Teper is Next?

By Per Ake Persson

Polish contender Mariusz Wach is out as co-challenger for the vacant EBU heavyweight title against Agit Kabayel, which was scheduled for February 4 in Magdeburg.

Instead of Wach, 24-year old Belgian Herve Hubeaux has stepped in as opponent. Hubeaux (26-1) can be found at # 15 in the current EBU ratings and have never really been tested.

Kabayel is  15-0 and is just like Hubeaux - rather inexperienced. As for Wach, not yet confirmed rumors are circulating that he will fight Erkan Teper on March 18 in Stuttgart.

IN OTHER NEWS: Dublin's Declan Geraghty (14-1-0, 4 KO's) will face Belfast's James Tennyson (17-2-0, 13 KO's) for the Vacant Irish Super-Featherweight title at the Waterfront Hall on Saturday 18th February, live and exclusive on BoxNation.

Having recently picked up another vicious knockout win on Frank Warren's November 5 'Homecoming' bill, 'Pretty Boy' is in a rich vein of form. Eight victories in succession since his controversial loss to Jono Carroll back in 2014 has placed Geraghty firmly into title contention.

The big-punching Tennyson boasts a high knockout ratio and will be looking to send his fans home happy with a memorable win on home soil. 23 year-old Tennyson captured the Irish Super-Featherweight title in only his sixth fight and is determined to get his hands on it again.

Both men are targeting titles and further big fights in 2017, making for what promises to be an explosive clash. This one is set to be a classic domestic encounter with plenty of Irish pride at stake.
