16-year old supermiddle Leon Bauer (1-0) is the youngest professional boxer in Germany and is hailed as a supertalent by his trainer and father Bernd as well as his manager Rainer Gottwald, who also manages another teenage supermiddle in Vincent Feigenbutz.
Bauer will face Misa Nikolic (20-35-2) on the undercard to Arthur Abraham vs Robert Stieglitz July 18 in Halle / Westfalen. On the same show Feigenbutz take on Maricio Reynoso for the interim WBA title as well as the GBU World title.
French superlightweight champ Franck Petitjean (14-4-3) defends the title against Renald “Lion” Garrido (14-11-1) October 17 at the Cirque d’Hiver in Paris.
In the co-feature Marvin Petit (16-1-1) and Sylvain Chapelle (14-19-2) square off for the vacant French lightweight title.
Gallego Prada Promociones and Maravilla Box join forces for a big show July 10 at the Vall’ Hebron in Barcelona. In the headliner Juli Giner (16-1-1) face Ivan Ruiz Morote (17-5-1) in an all Spanish matchup for the vacant EU superfeather title.
In the co-feature superwelter Isaac Real (11-1-1) take on Michael Mora (11-2-0) in a scheduled ten-rounder.
WBA lightheavy champ (standard version) Juergen Braehmer (46-2) defends the title September 5 in Dresden against Konni Konrad (22-1-1) in the headliner of a Sauerland Event promotion.
To say that Konrad is an underdog is to put it mildly. He began his in 2002 and racked up 15 straight wins before losing to Denis Inkin in 2006 and since then he´s been fighting on and off. He beat Bernard Donfack on a majority decision in 2013 and drew with Mehdi Amar in 2014 to hang on to the WBA Int´l title and his ranked # 13 by the WBA.
