WBO Euro superbantam champ Zsolt Bedak (22-1) will defend the title December 6 in Budapest against Russian Ruslan Berchuk (10-4) in the headliner of Felix-Promotion´s last show of the year. Plans to have Bedak fight for the WBO interim title as was previously announced by promoter Felix Racz apparently fell through.
Also on the bill is WBO Euro heavyweight ruler Francesco Pianeta (30-1-1) taking on Croatian Ivica Bacurin (18-6-1). This fight was first set for the Sturm vs Stieglitz bill November 8 but Pianeta had to pulll due to illness.
In the third headliner former Olympian Imre Szello (3-0) defends the Hungarian title against Sandor Nagy (10-1).
Superwelter and former IBO titleholder Attila Kovacs (34-4) face Frenchman Ludovic Duval (11-12) on the undercard.
The show is televised in Hungary and Germany.
Supermiddle Stefan Haertel (2-0) square off against Hungarian Zoltan Surman (15-11-1) on the undercard to Braehmer vs Glazewski December 6 in Oldenburg (Germany). Haertel is trained by Karsten Roever and spars with the likes of Braehmer, Enrico Koelling and Tyron Zeuge on a regular basis.
Sauerland Promotion stage a 12-fight bill at the Falconercenter in Copenhagen on Saturday November 29. Of special interest on the undercard is the comeback of Steffen Andersen (5-0). Andersen, now 36, was once one of many talented young fighters to come out of the CIK gym in Copenhagen where the biggest star was Mikkel Kessler and he and Steffen were friends
As it was Steffen got in trouble with the law and his professional career ended in 1998 and he was in 2008 sentenced to eight years in prison for his part in a huge armed robbery and is now out on probation. Helping him with his comeback is his old friend from CIK days Mikkel Kessler.
On Saturday Andersen face German Patrick Linkert (4-7-1) in a four-rounder made at cruiser Saturday night. Back in 98 Steffen weighed in at superwelter but he appears to have pumped a lot of iron since then.
