Belgian / Armenian featherweight Alex Miskirtchian (25-3-1) is sidelined with a handinjury and he is unable to fight July 24 in Madrid for the vacant EBU title against Rudy Encarnacion (34-23-4). However, to save the show the EBU have allowed a substitute in Sofiane Takoucht (29-3-1).
It may be destiny playing a part in this because Encarnacion vs Takoucht were all set in April to fight for the then vacant EU title July 10. As it was Takoucht was forced out due to a license problem. Encarnacion was then elevated to mandatory status for the EBU crown along with Miskirtchian.
Encarnacion vs Takoucht is promoted by Maravilla Box. The title was left vacant by Josh Warrington.
Queensberry Promotions won today´s purse bids in Rome for the right to promote the fight for the vacant EBU bantamweight title between Ryan Farrag (13-1) and Stephane Jamoye (28-6-).
Queensberry bid 39 000 Euro while Promotion GMG from Belgium bid 16 000 Euro.
Date and site is to be announced.
Italian middleweight Matteo Signani (21-4-3) has been appointed official challenger for EBU champ Michel Soro (27-1-1). The parties now have some time for private negotiations. If no deal the EBU will call for purse bids.
