EBU heavyweight champ Dereck Chisora, 18-4, makes a voluntary defence of the title November 30 in London and takes on Arnold Gjergjej, who hails from Kosova but fights out of Switzerland.
Dereck Chisora vs Arnold Gjergjej
Gjergjej, 20-0, is ranked # 20 by the EBU and don´t let the record fool you. Arnold isn´t bad at all is still relatively untested and Chisora is a big favourite in this one.
All was set for EBU welter champ Leonard Bundu to take on Gianluca Branco December 21 but now all parties involved have agreed on letting Bundu make a voluntary defence of the title December 14 in London against Lee Purdy. The winner of Bundu vs Purdy have agreed on fighting Branco next.
Lightweight Edis Tatli, 21-0, headlines P 3 Boxing´s show at the Baroni Arena in Espoo (Finland) December 7 and take on Argentinian Matias Ezequiel "Tsunami" Gomez. The WBA have yet to approve it as a defence of Tatli´s WBA I/C title. In the chief support middleweight Niko Jokinen, 21-1, again take on Lithuanian Virgilijus Stapuliones. Stapuliones won the the first fight so Jokinen is at the crossroads in this one. Welter Jussi Koivula, 14-1-1, is in against Dutchman Hassan Ait-Bassou, 13-5. The undercard features Eemeli Katajisto, Niklas Rasanen and the comeback of reigning EBU female superfeather champ Eva Wahlstrom.
Welters Ayoub Nefzi and Karlo Tabaghua headline the annual show in Izegem (Belgium) November 1. For Tabaghua, from the Georgian Republic for a few years now based in Sweden, it´s the first fight of the year and he´s now looking to fight out of Belgium and is managed by Archil Katamadze and Renald De Vulder.
Alexander Petkovic, once a teenage prospect with Universum, is back as a self-promoted heavyweight. Still only 33 Petkovic looked downright shot when his career with Universum ended in 2006 at the hands of Frenchman Kamel Amrane. Petkovic have since opened a gym in Munich and returned as a heavyweight with some success even if it must be said it´s been against soft opponents. On November 1 in Dachau Petkovic headlines his own show billed as "Petko´s Fight Gala" and take on Tanzanian Chupaki Chipindi. In November of 2003 Petkovic came very close to upsetting then WBO cruiser king Johnny Nelson but lost a majority decision.
