In a suprising move the defence of EBU superfeatherweight champion Roman Jacob (21-0) against Devis Boschiero (34-2-1) has been moved from August 9 in Abano (Italy) to Calais (France) October 10.
OPI 2000 won purse bids June 3 in Rome with a bid for 84 717 Euro while ABC Calaisien bid 84 121 Euro.
The parties have now however made a new agreement and the fight is moved to Calais where Jacob won a close split decision over Boschiero the first time they fought.
For Belgian Ermano Fegatill this means he will have to wait a bit longer before facing the winner but he has agreed to wait.
British heavyweight David Price (18-2) is sidelined with a hand injury and will be out until December. Price says in a press release from Team Sauerland that he hurt a finger in his last fight against Yaroslav Zavorotny and took some time before seeing a hand specialist.
WBO Youth lightheavy champion Dominic Boesel (15-0) will defend the title against Hungarian Daniel Regi (22-9) July 26 in Dessau (Germany) on a SES promotion. Headlining the bill is supermiddle Robert Stieglitz taking on Sergey Khomitsky for the vacant WBO I/C title.
