German super middleweight and former WBA interim-champ Vincent Feigenbutz has once again changed his trainer.

He will now, according to, be trained by Eduard Mchel and Kosta Patoulidis.

Feigenbutz, who challenges IBF king Caleb Plant on February 15 in Nashville, was first to be trained by veteran and living legend Ulli Wegner but he wound up in the hospital with a broken leg. Then Torsten Schmitz was hired as trainer but that collaboration ended almost before it started due to what appears to be a lack of planning and coordination as Schmitz also trains Sophie Allisch in Berlin while Team Feigenbutz, based in Karlsruhe, had plans for a training camp in the Slovenian mountains.

IBF Youth super welterweight champ Oliver Meng (7-0) defends the title against Ukrainan Vasyl Kondor (11-3) February 1 in Copenhagen on the next Danish Fight Night promotion.

Light heavyweight Jeppe Morell is also on the bill against an opponent to be announced and pulls no punches as he challenges Patrick Nielsen, now a freelancer, for an all-Danish showdown.

"Patrick is a chicken if he doesn´t dare to fight me," says Morell in a  press release. Nielsen, formerly with Team Sauerland and then with Q Boxing, has had some talks with promoter Mogens Palle but if they are able to come to terms isn´t clear yet.


EC Boxing has big plans for 2020 and it all begins January 18 in Hamburg with a co-promotion with SES topped by IBO welter champ Sebastian Formella defending the title against Roberto Arriiaza.

February 8 in Goeppingen EC have cruiserweight veteran Firat Arslan challenging IBO king Kevin Lerena and March 7 in Manchester light heavy Igor Mikhalkin taking on Callum Johnson with the vacant EBU title at stake.

EC also have heavyweights Christian Hammer, Ali Eren Demirezen, Erkan Teper, Jack Mulowayi, Erik Pfeifer, Nikola and Danilo Milacic and Michael Wallisch ready to go.


Swedish-Ugandan cruiserweight Kennedy Katende (4-0) is a freelancer after spending 2019 waiting and training for fights with Banner Promotions in the US that never materialized. He first signed with the now defunct Real Deal Promotions and then signed with Banner.

Katende represented Sweden in the 08 Olympics (where he lost to one Artur Beterbiev) and Uganda in 2016 and was also an AIBA pro representing the Mexico City Guerreros.
