Unbeaten heavyweights Ali Eren Demirezen, 7-0, and Michael Wallisch, 17-0, clash on March 24 in Hamburg with the vacant WBO Euro title at stake.
Wallish has by now been around since 2010 with long layoffs due to outside of the ring problems and change of promoters.
He´s now promoted and trained by Richard Steiner.
The March 24 show is a co-promotion between EC Boxing and Sauerland Event and is topped by Tyron Zeuge vs Isaac Ekpo.
Off the bill is the excellent matchup between unbeaten cruisers Tervel Pulev and Huseyn Cinkara as Pulev has pulled out.
47-year old WBA cruiser king Firat Arslan continues his career with a fight against Salvatore Aiello, a somewhat misleading 33-1-1.
Danish boxing is in mourning following the death of Jean Schmucker. Schmucker trained many of the best Danish amateurs and pros in the 70´s, 80´s and 90´s such as EBU champs like Hans Henrik Palm, Jimmi and Johnny Bredahl and Brian Nielsen. Many describe Schmucker as the difference between a good career in the ring or a tough life on the streets writes Ekstrabladet.
Famed trainer Ulli Wegner pulls no punches as he tells BILD that if the Max Schmeling Gym closes as previously reported he will retire. The 75-year old Wegner have over the years trained the likes Sven Ottke, Arthur Abraham, Marco Huck amd Marcus Beyer and many others.
Italy-based Dominican Christian Arvelo Segura is the new World Boxing Federation (WBF) International Super Middleweight Champion after beating local favourite Christian Schembri on Saturday night, February 24, at the Corradino Sports Pavillion in Paola, Malta.
Fighting outside of Italy for only the second time and a slight underdog, Schembri having competed at a higher level, Arvelo Segura put on a disciplined performance. The home-man was mostly the aggressor, but Arvelo Segura was effective boxing off the back-foot. Judges Amabli Camilleri and Pietro Battoglio scored the fight 99-91 and 100-93 for Arvelo Segura.
