Miskirtchian vs Yefimovich was a mandatory defence by the champ and was set for October 27 in Charleroi. To save the promotion and the date the EBU have allowed Miskirtchian to make a voluntary defence and opponent will now be Italian Suat Laze.

39-year old American journeyman Bruce Rumbolz returns to Austria a third time to fight on an Iron & Steel Promotion October 13 in Guessing. Rumbolz have lost his previous two fights there and is a long losing streak. So why have him back? It turns out that Bruce and promoter Otto Lorenz have become good friends and this time Rumbolz brings his family with him and the opponent, Mounir Toumi, is beatable.
