Proksa Has No Problem With Facing Zbik in Germany

By Luke Furman

EBU middleweight champion Grzegorz Proksa (26-0, 19 KOs) has no problem facing mandatory challenger Sebastian Zbik (30-1, 10 KOs) in Germany. A few months ago Proksa traveled to Neubrandenburg to capture the vacant EBU belt with a one-sided beating of former IBF champion Sebastian Sylvester.

BoxingScene.com reported on Tuesday that Felix Sturm's company, Sturm Promotions, submitted the winning purse bid for the bout between Proksa and Zbik. Sturm wants to stage this contest in the month of March in Germany.

"Another fight in Germany. We've already seen that I have no problem doing that," Proksa said.

Krzysztof Zbarski, manager of Proksa, gives the fight a 50-50 chance of taking place. He doesn't know if Zbik is actually planning to move forward as planned. He hopes the fight takes place because a victory could get them a title shot. He saw Zbik as the winner of the bout with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., which took place earlier this year. Chavez won a twelve round majority decision in a fight that could have went either way.

"Money is not everything. It is important becasue [Zbik] is an attractive contender. I consider him as an undefeated [fighter] because the judges cost him the Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. fight. A victory over him would open new and great prospects, including the possibility of a fight for the championship of the world," he said.

[QUOTE=Spray_resistant;11589117]He looked fantastic against Sylvester but that was the only time I had seen him fight and sometimes fighters do look good once on a big stage then every other time they just look ok.[/QUOTE] Honestly that was more Sylvester…

I read that this guy is promoted by Matchroom, if so they should be putting a bit more money behind him and have him on big fight undercards (ie. Froch-Ward) and making sure he doesn't have to travel to Germany…

[QUOTE=Spray_resistant;11589140]IDK Andy Lee can make a case[/QUOTE] really? He only has Brian Vera and Craig McEwan. None of those guys were ever really top 10 guys. Maybe he'll have a case if he beats Martin Murray.

With the Sylvester and Zibik wins, Proksa would have the best resume in the middleweight division. It's too bad he can't get a belt with that.
