Tyron Zeuge Sidelined With Illness, Ekpo Rematch Pushed Back

By Per Ake Persson

WBA "standard" super middleweight champ Tyron Zeuge is sidelined with illness and his defence against mandatory challenger Isaac Ekpo December 2 in Potsdam is postponed with no new date set.

This fight was billed as 'The Rematch' with Zeuge winning a somewhat controversial technical decision the first time around.

However, the show will not be canceled and still go on with heavyweights Burak Sahin and Otto Wallin topping the bill at the MBS Arena. Sahin takes on Sergio Romano while Wallin is in against Gabriel Enguema with more fights to be announced.


Former EBU jr lightweight champ Lars Lund Jensen has been sentenced to a not determined time behind bars after a series of rapes and violence against women. In effect it means the now 55-year old might be locked up for the rest of his life. Jensen turned pro in 1986 and was a bright prospect winning the EBU title in his tenth fight. However, he lost to stablemate Racheed Lawal and then what appears to be life long troubles started in what looks like a tragedy for all involved.

French heavyweight prospect Tony Yoka, 2-0, takes on Belgian Ali Baghouz (14-1-1) December 16 in Boulougne-Billancourt. Also on the bill is Souleyman Cissokho, Nordine Oubaali, Eli Konkie and Michel Tavarez.


On a huge night for Irish boxing, Jamie Conlan will challenge Filipino champion Jerwin Ancajas for the IBF world super-flyweight title in the chief-support bout.

The Conlan clan will boast two world champions should the Belfast challenger emerge victorious in front of his home crowd as his younger brother Michael claimed a world amateur title in Doha back in 2015 before turning professional earlier this year.

“It would be brilliant. We’ll both be world champions and it’ll be something to be really proud of,” said the elder Conlan (31). “I still think Mick’s world title was harder to claim than any pro world title, so he’ll still have that one over me, but he didn’t get a belt so I’ll parade that around!”

Conlan (an undefeated 19-0 as a pro) clocked in at 115lbs at yesterday’s weigh-in – the same weight as the Manny Pacquiao-promoted Ancajas (27-1-1).

The challenger believes the 25-year-old champion is a skilled and dangerous southpaw, but insists he is ready for his big night.

“I’ve prepared for this my whole career. MTK have given me this opportunity and I’m going to grab it with both hands. Ancajas is a great fighter, probably one of the top two super-flyweights in the world, but I’ll be leaving the Odyssey with that belt on Saturday night.”
