The European Boxing Association, EBA, have filed a lawsuit against the WBA in a Spanish court for 1,5 million EUR. The WBA ousted the EBA in 2011 for reasons they never made public.
The EBA was first formed as a regional body, "the Euro-African Boxing Association", in the late 90´s but soon the "African" part disappeared, which lead to a conflict with the European Boxing Union, the EBU. The EBA was going pretty strong though with the support of the WBA but somewhere around 2005 the EBA got into a conflict with the main body and was eventually locked out. The organisation never folded but was more or less out of business when there was a sudden comeback a few years ago and while the EBA never was a subtitle to the WBA there was a close collaboration - that came to an sudden end in 2011. No-one outside of the inner circle appears to know anything about the reasons for the disputes.
The WBA have now created a continental title but this far there have been very little activity.
Italian Michele Di Rocco and Brit Lenny Daws will clash for the vacant EBU 140 lb title April 27 with OPI 2000 as promoters. Site have yet to be announced.
SES promotes in Potsdam March 2 and with triple female world champ Ramona Kuehne on top and have now added an interesting co-feature with Denis Simcic, 28-2, again facing Frenchman Jonathan Profichet, 14-8. Profichet stopped Simcic in one the first time the two clashed in what on paper was a big upset. The rematch was first on for Slovenia late February although it was never confirmed by SES.
Kuehne will face Brazilian Halanna Dos Santos in a defence of the WBO, WIBF and WBFed female superfeather titles.
The fight for the vacant EU flyweight title between Spaniard Xavier Urpi and Italian Giuseppe Lagana that was set for Madrid March 2 is off as Lagana is out of boxing at the moment due a work related matter. Urpi may face a substitute from the EU ratings or the promotion as a whole will be cancelled.
