By Per Ake Persson

Dutch super middleweight and former World Boxing Super Series participant Nieky Holzken, 13-1, takes on Serbian veteran Geard Ajetovic, 31-17-1, on April 28 in Offenburg. Holzken, a very late replacement, lost a gusty fight with Callum Smith in the WBSS semi-finals.

Also on the bill is Norwegian cruiserweight Kai Robin Havnaa, 12-0, who takes on Frank Bluemle, 15-5-2.

In the main event super middleweights Arthur Abraham and Patrick Nielsen square off in a genuine crossroads fight.
