EBU welter champ Leonard Bundu, 28-0-2, will defend the title against mandatory challenger Rafael Jackiewicz, 42-10-2, in Italy with site and date to be announced. Boxe Loreni will promote the fight and it won´t as a surprise if the fight lands in Bundu´s hometown of Florence.
Leonard Bundu vs Rafal Jackiewicz
This will be Bundu´s 4th defence of the title he won in 2011. In Jackiewiwcz he face capable, still dangerous veteran, who has fought in Italy before and won.
EBU bantam champ Stephane Jamoye, who won the title in December against Lee Haskins in what many ringside observers said it was among the best fights they had ever seen, will make a voluntary defence of the title in Herstal, Belgium, March 9, against an opponent to be announced.
If all goes well Jamoye, 24-3, will face mandatory challenger Zhanat Zhakiyanov, 19-1, who hails from Kazachstan but is signed to Hatton Promotions in the UK.
Tuffing in Stockholm, Sweden, returns to Gota Kallare February 2 for their second show and again lightheavy Oscar "Golden Boy" Ahlin, 6-0 (6), is on the bill as well as jr middle Akilles Adnan, 6-1-1. There´s also an interesting fight at welter between veteran Vatche Wartanian, 9-4-3, and Michael Obin, 3-1. It´s planned that all fights will be over six three minute rounds - something that according to the special rules in Sweden require special permission from the Martial Arts Delegation.
On the same night in Ballerup, Denmark, Euro Event join forces with the 6-day cycling race for special event headlined by heavyweight Claus Bertino, a local man who at 14-4-0, is on the way back after some tough losses on the road.
