Tony Yoka vs. Alexander Dimitrenko on July 13 in Antibes

By Per Ake Persson

French heavyweight Tony Yoka (5-0) will take on German-Ukrainian veteran Alexander Dimitrenko (41-5) on July 13 in Antibes on a Ringstar Promotion.

For Yoka it´s his first fight for a year due to a suspension after missing three doping tests.

Dimitrenko has lost his last two but going five rounds with Andy Ruiz as Dimitrenko did last time out looks pretty good these days but it should also be noted that Alexander has been stopped in four of his five losses.

Also on the Antibes bill are super welterweights Cedric Vitu (47-3)) and Souleyman Cissokho (9-0). Vitu takes on Russian Alexander Sharonov (12-3-2) while Cissokho is in against Jose Carlos Paz (23-9-1).


Edis Tatli (31-3) headlines the annual outdoor show Savonlinna in Eastern Finland on August 10. Tatli was knocked out in five by Teofimo Lopez (13-0) on April 20 in New York. Opponent for the former two-time EBU lightweight champ is to be announced.

Also on the bill is a fight between Timo Laine (24-12-0-1), who normally campaigns at super middle, and Marko Mononen (7-1) who is a cruiserweight. The fight is made at 86 kg / 189.6 lbs.

Norwegians Alexander Hagen (13-2), Kevin Melhus (6-0) and Ingrid Egner (2-0) all fight on Siesta Boxing´s show in Bracknell June 29. Melhus, a cruiserweight, is in against Ossie Jervier (6-8) and that is probably his toughest opponent to date. Opponents for Hagen and Egner are to be announced.

Yoka should get the job done

Yoka is way overrated imo but he should stop Dimitrenko, unless Sacha lands a bomb like he did against Granat
