Originally the highlight ofthe day was expected in Germany where Bulgaria's promising Kubrat Pulev (19-0, 10) was penciled in to fight. Unfortunately the opponent has just been named as Joey Dawejko (9-3-2, 3) who appeard to ave taken the fight on around 50 hours notice and won't have had much in terms of a training camp. In all fairness the lack of training won't be the biggest issue for Dawejko who is just not good enough for very solid Pulev.
Staying in Germany there has been bouts announced for Werner Kreiskott (16-19-2, 10), Sotirios Georgikeas (3-0, 2), Fatih Yildiz (11-0, 5) and the debuting Dennis Kiy (0-0) unfortunately none of these men have had their opponents named suggesting weak and probably out of shape opponents all round.
The only bout, other than Pulev's, which seems to have been arranged is a cotest between unbeaten novice Martin Edelmann (1-0, 1) and beaten novice Marlon Szabo (1-2, 1) and lets be honest this one poses no real excitement on paper or looks anything even close to "interesting".
Thankfully the action over the German/French border looks somewhat interesting with a small collection of Heavyweight bouts through France.
Whilst it's fair to say that not many people will be awaiting the result of Bwana Tshilenge's (1-0) bout against Jonathan Sauteur (1-1) their should be interest in the other bouts set to tak place in France.
One of those will see Franck Acho (1-0, 1) taking on testing Georgian David Gegeshidze (11-5-1, 2) in what looks like a great test for Acho in just his srecond fight. We know the Georgian isn't very good but we don't know how good Acho is and as a result this is a decent test for such a novice.
The highight of the French action comes in a pretty good looking C level bout between once beaten Frenchman Johann Duhaupas (30-1, 19) and the rotund, though popular and memorable, Janne Katajisto (16-1-1, 8). Katajisto, known as the Finnish Butterbean, shouldn't give the Frenchman many problem but this is still the sort of bout that's thoroughy acceptable as this level. Not only is the bout a good one on paper but it will also decide the EBU-EU Heavyweight champion giving the winner a fringe world ranking.
Staying in Europe, though over to Britain, we're expecting to see Luke Martin 0-2(2)-1 in action against a TBA opponent.
More TBA's are in action In the US as the promotional outfit of Deontay Wilder and close associate Jay Deas will be linking up to bring us fights with Derek Walker (1-11) and Keith Thompson (6-2, 4) both facingyet to named opponents.
All in all a poor Saturday.
