Wilfried Sauerland is Now Fully Back To Run His Company

By Per Ake Persson

78-year old Hall of Fame promoter Wilfried Sauerland is back in business, writes Berliner Morgenpost.

Sauerland has been semi-retired for a few years but will once again take over Sauerland Event, the company he started back in 1980.

The company has for the last few years been run by sons Kalle and Nisse but Kalle is now fully occupied with Comosa and the World Boxing Super Series Tournament while Nisse is involved in Sauerland´s business ventures in Scandinavia and the UK and resides in London.


First up for Mr. Sauerland is a renewal of the contract with trainer Ulli Wegner, who in the past few months openly complained about the lack of structure and planning in the company, and it is reported that only a few details remain to be worked out before Wegner signs a contract for another year.

The contractual dispute with WBA "regular" super middleweight champ Tyron Zeuge needs to be solved - even as Zeuge takes on Rocky Fielding on Saturday in Offenburg. 

Zeuge´s trainer Juergen Braehmer has also left Team Sauerland and is now mandatory challenger for the EBU super middleweight title.

"We will put together a new team of boxers," says Sauerland to

On Saturday in Offenburg one of the faces, super middleweight Leon Bunn, 9-0, will get a good test from Serhyi Demchenko, 19-13-1, who steps in at short notice for Yoann Kongolo. Demchenko is a high level 'has gloves and will travel' type of fighter who is always ready to go.
