N'jikam vs Bursak WBO Title Clash Moves Forward on 5/4

By Kamel Messani

It's official. Talented middleweight Hassan N'Dam N'Jikam (26-0, 17 KO) will place his undefeated record at stake against another unblemished boxer, Ukrainian Max "Tiger" Bursak (24-0-1, 10 KO), on May 4th. The two fighters will battle for the WBO's interim-middleweight belt at the Palais des Sports Marcel Cerdan in Levallois-Perret. The fight was originally scheduled for April 20th in Malabo in Equatorial Guinea. The team behind full champion Dmitry Pirog were against the scheduling of this fight, but the World Boxing Organization still sanctioned the contest.

Good fight. I've wathced both on youtube obviously. N'Jikam looks better than Bursak, but Pirog is above both.

N'Jikam ain't that good. I would have given him a good shot against Sturm but Pirog would dominate him.

N'jikam is a pretty good boxer his team must see there chances for success are increased against Pirog rather then Golovkin also if he wins he'll possibly get a shot at the WBO @ IBF belts if the Pirog-Geale fight…
