WBA super middleweight champion Tyron Zeuge´s convincing win over mandatory challenger Isaac Ekpo this past weekend has opened the door for a big domestic showdown against former world titleholder and current IBF I/C king Vincent Feigenbutz and it appears to be a natural and a big fight for the German market.

The winner can then be matched against the winner of Arthur Abraham vs Patrick Nielsen later this spring.

Depending on how it all works out, Zeuge´s trainer Juergen Braehmer should also figure in the mix.

Commonwealth cruiserweight champ Luke Watkins is the new co-challenger for Italian Fabio Turchi, who first saw Alexandru Jur drop out and then Micki Nielsen. The EBU have set April 16 as deadline for purse offer or agreements.


MK Events´ show at the Palais des Sports Marcel Cerdan in Levallois Perret March 30 is billed as Main Event 6 and feature four main fights, three all-French matchups and one international.

At light heavyweight Hadillah Mohoumadi takes on Nadjib Mohammedi for the WBA Continental title. Super lightweight Renald Garrido defends the French title against Massi Tachour and super middleweight Kevin Lele Sadjo does the same against Matiouze Royer.

Cruiserweight Herve Lodi is in against Brazilian Julio Cesar Dos Santos, who comes in at late notice for Nick Kisner.

All in all, like all MK Events, quite a show!
