Cruiserweight Noel Gevor (10-0) take on Gogita Gorgiladze (a very inflated 18-4) in a scheduled ten rounder for the WBO Youth title in a featured bout to Abraham vs Sjekloca May 3 at the Tempodrome in Berlin.
Gorgiladze lost to Micki Nielsen in Denmark for the WBC Youth bauble in February and showed nothing in a one-sided fight.
Lightheavy Eduard Gutknecht (25-3) returns to action after the loss to Dmitry Sukhotsky late last year and is in against Pablo Sosa (3-3-2).
At welter Timo Schwarzkopf (13-0) and Anzor Gamgebeli (17-5-3) square off for the vacant EBU-EE title. Swedish heavy Otto Wallin (6-0) is featured in his first six rounder against an opponent to be announced.
German promoter Ralph Neumann staged his biggest show yet last night (April 26) at the Hansehall in Luebeck. The show was ill attended, writes boxwelt.com, with only around 100 paying customers attending. The show went on but Neuemann left the venue and some time after it was announced that he had died in a traffic accident. None of fighters nor officials had received their purses. However, according to boxwelt’s sources there are signs of that Neumann is alive and the police in the area have no reports of any accidents with a deadly outcome. Furthermore, boxwelt writes that Neumann's cellphone was off at midnight but on again at 2.30 AM only to be switched off again. The show was sanctioned by the BDF, the smallest and latest of the many sanctioning bodies on German soil.
Tony Averlant and Serdar "Bomber" Sahin clash for the vacant WBFed title May 7 in St Quentin (France) on a show promoted by Blue Ciel Promotions. Averlant (19-8-2) looked very unlucky not to get the decision against Eduard Gutknecht in Germany in 2012 in an EBU title fight but was knocked out in two by Juergen Braehmer in 2013 with the same title at stake. Sahin (22-1) began his career as a cruiser and was first promoted by SES but then became a freelancer and seemed for some time to be on the road to nowhere but is now signed by DOG Event & Boxing Company and is trained by no other than former supermiddle champ Sven Ottke.
