It's official: today (February 14) SES and Z! Promotions revealed the plans for their big event March 18 at the Arena in Leipzig alhough some of the news have been known for some time. Either way, topping the bill is EBU lightheavy champ Robert Stieglitz (pictured), who take on Nikola Sjekloca.
The EBU was quick to name an offical challenger for newly crowned superlightweight champ Anthony Yigit and it is Spaniard Sandor Martin, 28-0-1, that gets the appointment. Martin held the EU title a while back and had Yigit as his official challenger but relinquished title probably with the sight set on bigger fights. No date have been set for agreements or purse bids and it is likely that Yigit will make a voluntary defence of the title before the mandatory.
EC Boxing in Hamburg continue to expand and the latest signing is undefeated superwelter Sebastian Formella, 13-0, who hails from Hamburg and works in the port.
