Thomas Masson vs Kevin Satchell
Masson-Satchell go back to the fall of 2014 when Satchell (14-0) held the EBU title and Masson (14-3-1) was mandatory challenger. For one reason or another the fight always fell through until Satchell was finally stripped of the belt. Masson then beat Valery Yanchy to win the vacant title and this is his first defence.
