There were mixed results for the main event fighters on Felix-Promotion´s show last night in Budakalasz (Hungary). Featherweight Robert Laki (8-0-1) stepped in for Zsolt Bedak and got a draw after six very tough rounds against Spaniard Sergio Romero (8-4-4).
Lightheavy Richard Baranyi (10-1) got knocked out by Argentinian Pablo Sosa (4-4-3) in the fourth. On paper it looks like an upset but Sosa is much better than his record indicates.
Cruiserweight Imre Szello (6-0) outscored experienced Romanian Giulian Ilie (20-9-2) over eight.
Danish lightheavyweight veteran Lolenga Mock (pictured) is currently in Cologne, Germany sparring with Felix Sturm. Mock has been a part of Sturm´s team for several years now.
The last time Mock fought was in October 2013 when he lost to Erik Skoglund in a challenge for the EU title but there is another fight on the horizon for the 43-year old and that is to fight for the IBF Continental Africa title.
Date and site and opponent have yet to be set and the show is to be promoted by Mock himself.
All profit from the show will go to help people in Tanzania who suffers from albinism disorder also known as albinos, who suffers terribly in the heat and their eyes also lack pigment causing the sunlight to overpower their visual field.
IBF Africa are offering full support and Mock is also looking for sponsors to help the event get off the ground.
French middleweights Karim Achour (19-4-3) and Mouez Fhima (22-4-2) fight for the vacant EU middleweight title July 10 in Paris on a show promoted by Le Ring de Fontenay.
Achour and Fhima drew earlier this year in a clash for the national title held by Achour.
