Ruben Nieto Vacates EBU Belt, Goes For IBF Regional on 10/15

By Per Ake Persson

Spanish super lightweight Ruben Nieto (18-1) has relinquished the EBU title he won by beating Lenny Daws in December of last year. A rematch was ordered but never got off the ground and Nieto defended the title in July against Nicolas Gonzales in an all Spanish matchup.

Next up for Nieto is a fight against Venezuelan Ernesto Espana October 15 at a site to be announced in Spain with the IBF International title at stake.

As for who Lenny Daws, still the official challenger, will fight for the EBU  belt - it  appears that both # 1 and 2 in the ratings, Viktor Postol and Kirll Relikh, are not available which could give Sweden´s Anthony "Can You Dig It" Yigit the chance.

Promoters Aleksander Petkovic and Nadine Rausch have also signed up two-time world heavyweight contender Francesco Pianeta (31-2). Pianeta´s two losses are against Wladimir Klitschko and Ruslan Chagaev.
