Bild writes that Sauerland Event have signed up 31-year old heavyweight Michael Wallisch, who was previously with SES and before that with EC. Wallisch will be trained by the legendary Ulli Wegner in Berlin. When he makes his debut for Sauerland is not known.
The 31-year old Wallisch is undefeated in 16 fights and previously won the WBO Euro title but have had a somewhat troubled career since turning pro in 2011 with layoffs due to injuries, contractual disputes and a prison term.
More news from Bild: The IBF have ordered an all German eliminator at cruiserweight between Noel Gevor (22-0 and IBF # 3) and reigning IBO title holder Marco Huck (40-3-1 and IBF # 4). Gevor is with Sauerland Event while Huck is own man after spending most of his career with Sauerland.
43-year old German heavyweight Marcel "the Highlander" Zeller (pictured above) has passed away in what appears to be related to misuse of drugs. Zeller (24-16) always entered the ring in a Scottish kilt and scored a lot of early knockouts in the beginning of his career but when the opponents was the likes of Tyson Fury, Jonathon Banks or Erkan Teper it was the other way around. Zeller´s last six fights all ended inside the distance - five of them in the first round with Zeller on the floor.
