IBF female jr middle champ Jennifer Retzke could be defending the title against Mikaela Lauren March 30 in Stockholm, Sweden. The fighters are in agreement but as always in Sweden there´s a special permission needed to allow the fight to go over ten two minute rounds.
The max distance allowed in Sweden is 12 minutes and beyond that you need special permission the Martial Arts Delegation.
Leonard Bundu´s, 28-0-2, defence of the EBU welterweight title against Pole Rafael Jackiewicz, 42-10-2, will go ahead April 6 in Rome.
Boxe Loreni, headed by Mario Loreni, wanted to do the fight in Florence but the venue wasn´t available and TV insisted on April 6 as date and thus the fight landed in Rome and Bundu lost hometown advantage.
