On Friday night the Brandenburg Halle plays host to a possible future Price opponent as the former world title challenger Francesco Pianeta (28-1-1, 15) fights against the unbeaten Rene Tueber (8-0, 7). Tueber is a clear under-dog here despite his unbeaten record and it'd be a massive shock if he remained unbeaten against Pianeta who may not be a top world level fighter but he's a credible fringe contender.
On the same Germany show we also get the chance to catch two up and comers. The first of those will be the promising youngster Tom Schwarz (2-0, 2). Schwarz has stopped both of his previous opponents inside a round and will be hoping to do the same to the experienced Edgars Kalnars (24-26, 15). With Schwarz wanting an opneing round victory we wouldn't doubting him getting it with Kalnars having been stopped inside a round in 8 of his 26 losses, including 5 of his last 6 losses dating back to November 2009.
The second bout will be Michael Wallisch (10-0, 7) taking on Lars Buchholz (24-6, 17) who boasts an impressive looking record on paper. Unfortunately Buchholz is a former Light Heavyweight who has been beaten in 2 of his last 4.
As well as the action in Germany there is also Heavyweight action stateside. In the US we expect to see the unbeaten Lateef Kayode (18-0-0-1, 14) fighting against the hard hitting but very fragile Travis Fulton (21-33-1, 20). Kayode, a big hitting Cruiserweight, will be making his first bout above the Cruiserweight limit since 2010 though will be expected to take out Fulton inside the distance.
On the same show as the Kayode/Fulton contest we also expect to see John Makani Sarellano (1-1, 1) in action against a yet to be named opponent.
A second US card features what looks like an easy win for Danny Batchelder (28-9-1, 14) as he fights Jamal Woods (3-9-2, 3). Woods has won just 1 of his last 11, a 119 second KO over Isaac Teran, and we'd not expect that to change over the Batchelder who is a solid enough club fighter.
