Robert Stieglitz Retires From Boxing, Boesel Will Now Face Murat

By Per Ake Persson

The next show promoted by SES will go ahead July 1 in Dresden. On top there is a very interesting fight for the now vacant EBU light heavyweight title between Dominic Boesel (24-0) and Karo Murat (30-3-1). It was first actually announced by the EBU that then champion Robert Stieglitz would take on Boesel but he has now relinquished the title and in comes Murat, who is promoted by EC Boxing. Boesel holds the WBO and IBF I/C as well as the WBA Cont´l titles but Murat have more experience from bigger fights.

Stieglitz, WBO champ at super middleweight, EBU titlist at light heavyweight along with other minor titles, announced today his retirement and he can look back at a long and excellent career in boxing. Stieglitz goes out with a record of 50-5-2.

Spanish all-time great Luis Folledo has passed away at the age of 79. Folledo was active in the 1960´s and was a big ticket seller and very popular with Spanish boxing fans. He held the national title at welter and middleweight and fought three times for the EBU title but the likes of Nino Benvenuti and Laszlo Papp were too much for him. He retired in 1969 with a record of 128-6-1 compiled in eleven years as a pro.

Italian cruiser Mirko Larghetti is sidelined with an injury and won´t be able to challenger Belgian Yves Ngabu for the vacant EBU title June 4 in Roselaere. Larghetti recently replaced Geoffrey Batello, who also pulled out with an injury.  However the show is on and Hungarian Tamas Lodi have stepped in as a late sub and have been approved by the EBU. Lodi, 19-9-2, is more a journeyman than a contender but is in with a puncher´s chance.

EC Boxing have signed up Croatian heavyweight Agron Skamici, 8-0. Skamici will now relocate to Hamburg and will be trained by former EBU heavyweight Juergen Blin, who fought Muhammad Ali in 1971. Blin also beat the legendary Wilhelm von Homburg, who later made it to Hollywood and landed a big role in the first Die Hard movie.

Robert Stieglitz has had a very good career. 50 wins, just 5 losses.

Stieglitez was a tough fighter, but not great.

Didn't know Murat was still fighting. Boesel has gotten artificially high ratings by the WBO (was #1 to Kovalev for a while before the Ward fight) without fighting anybody so will be interesting to see what happens if he's ever…

Probably a good decision from Stieglitz. Boesel/Murat is a good Euro level fight

He's challenging Nathan Cleverly for the WBA belt
