Swedish light heavyweight contender Erik Skoglund, 17-0, is the new mandatory challenger for the vacant EU title after Frenchman Hakim Chioui pulled out. Co-challenger is former WBO cruiserweight king Enzo Maccarinelli, 36-6.
The EBU have set July 11 as date for purse bids and deadline for agreements.
Both Sauerland Promotions and Frank Warren Promotions have confirmed interest in the fight that is an interesting matchup between an up and coming fighter against an aging veteran.
