The highly interesting fight at cruiser between Nuri Seferi (36-7) and Damir Beljo (20-0) that was set for Mostar (Bosnia & Hercegovina) September 15 is off after Beljo suffered an injury in training.
The fight might be rescheduled for a date in October but it’s not certain.
The undercard would have featured lightheavy Karo Murat (27-2-1) but he will be back later in the year.
French heavyweight and WBC heavyweight contender Johann Duhaupas (32-2) will due the bulk of his preparations at home in Abbeville. The plan was first to go to Manchester and train with Tyson Fury but those plans were scrapped and Duhaupas (pictured) will train in Abbeville until September 16 before departing to the US and the fight against WBC king Deontay Wilder (34-0) September 26.
As for sparring, two big Ukrainian kickboxers, Viktor Vykhryst and Dmitry Bezus, will be brought in to help Duhaupas get ready for Wilder. Duhaupas has already sparred with former WBA cruiser champ Youri Kalenga.
Finnish supermiddle Niklas Rasanen (10-0) take on Welsh champ Tobias Webb (15-3-1) over ten October 3 in Kotka. Rasanen promises a very hot sauna for Webb, so hot, says Niklas, that Webb will think twice before leaving the British isles again.
Trashtalk aside, Rasanen vs Webb is a solid matchup and in the chief support middleweights Paulie Klemetti (4-0) take on Timo Laine (10-5) for the vacant national title.
PSP Boxteam stage a show September 6 in Wismar on the German Baltic Sea Coast. Female lightweight Nicole Wesner (10-0) defends the WBFed title against Irma Balijagaic Adler (15-5) in the headliner.
