The European Boxing Association, EBA, have filed a lawsuit against the WBA in a Spanish court for 1,5 million EUR. The WBA ousted the EBA in 2011 for reasons they never made public.
 
The EBA was first formed as a regional body, "the Euro-African Boxing Association", in the late 90´s but soon the "African" part disappeared, which lead to a conflict with the European Boxing Union, the EBU. The EBA was going pretty strong though with the support of the WBA but somewhere around 2005 the EBA got into a conflict with the main body and was eventually locked out. The organisation never folded but was more or less out of business when there was a sudden comeback a few years ago and while the EBA never was a subtitle to the WBA there was a close collaboration - that came to an sudden end in 2011. No-one outside of the inner circle appears to know anything about the reasons for the disputes.
 
The WBA have now created a continental title but this far there have been very little activity.
 
**************************
 
Italian Michele Di Rocco and Brit Lenny Daws will clash for the vacant EBU 140 lb title April 27 with OPI 2000 as promoters. Site have yet to be announced.
 
**************************
 
SES promotes in Potsdam March 2 and with triple female world champ Ramona Kuehne on top and have now added an interesting co-feature with Denis Simcic, 28-2, again facing Frenchman Jonathan Profichet, 14-8. Profichet stopped Simcic in one the first time the two clashed in what on paper was a big upset. The rematch was first on for Slovenia late February although it was never confirmed by SES.
 
Kuehne will face Brazilian Halanna Dos Santos in a defence of the WBO, WIBF and WBFed female superfeather titles.
 
**************************
 
The fight for the vacant EU flyweight title between Spaniard Xavier Urpi and Italian Giuseppe Lagana that was set for Madrid March 2 is off as Lagana is out of boxing at the moment due a work related matter. Urpi may face a substitute from the EU ratings or the promotion as a whole will be cancelled.
