Croatian cruiserweight Marino "Cro Beast" Goles (16-1) has 24 rounds of championship boxing ahead of him in September.
On September 5 Goles defend the World Boxing Foundation title against Bekim Pagga (4-5) in Loznica (Serbia).
Then on September 20 in Holzminden (Germany) Marino moves up to heavyweight to challenge WBU (the German organization) champ Mark De Mori (26-1-1).
The WBU is aware of the situation and President Torsten Knille says there is a good opponent available for De Mori should Goles be unable to fight.
Brit Lee Selby (19-1) was all set to defend the EBU featherweight title October 4 against Davide Dieli (15-3) but have now relinquished the title to for a final IBF eliminator.
Since Matchroom have the date and an opponent for Dieli the EBU council have by majority vote allowed Josh Warrington (18-0 and # 6 in the EBU ratings) to take on Dieli (pictured) for the vacant title and the fight go ahead in Leeds October 4.
The postponement of Wladimir Klitschko´s defence of the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight titles against Kubrat Pulev September 6 in Hamburg also led to a cancellation of a fight between Swedish heavyweight Adrian Granat (4-0) and British veteran Danny Williams (46-23). EC Boxing, who promotes Granat, is looking for another date in September for the fight or it might go ahead October 31 in Cuxhaven where EC stage their next show (televised by EuroSport). Granat is still to take on Serdar Uysal in Copenhagen September 13 on Sauerland Promotion´s next edition of Nordic Fight Night.
Middleweights Istvan Szili (17-0-2) and Matteo Signani (20-4-3) clash for the vacant EU title September 28 in Gatteo Mare (Italy). Boxe Loreni promotes the fight.
