For us the mostnotable bout takes place in Germany as Denis Boytsov (33-0, 26) battles Alex Leapai (29-4-3, 24) in a contest for the WBO Asia Pacific Heavyweight title. It's now expected that if Boytsov can defeat Leapai he'll be walking into a Heavyweight world title fight in early 2014 against Wladimir Klitschko.
On the same show as Boytsov/Leapai we expect to see the promising prospect Otto Wallin (3-0, 3) in action against journeyman Tomas Mrazek (7-43-6, 5) in what is expected to be Wallin's toughest bout to date, though still far from a real test.
Whilst the best fight might be in Germany there is also a key bout in Macau where Mexican destroyer Andy Ruiz Jr (20-0, 14) fights American Tor Hamer (21-2, 14). With the WBO Inter-Continental Heavyweight title, held by Ruiz, and the vacant NABF Heavyweight title both on the line there is plenty to play for here, though Hamer strikes us as the sort of fighter who struggles when a fighter pushes him and Ruiz will push him.
In the US we have a number of Heavyweight contests. The most interesting fighter in action Stateside is Alexis Santos (11-0, 10). Although Santos is facing a yet to be named opponent he is a fighter we're very interested in and a fighter we're keeping a close eye on.
The other US bouts will see Khalib Whitmore (2-0, 1) taking on Martez Williamson (1-3), Tyyab Beale (8-3-1, 3) fighting Jon Bolden (6-6, 5) and William Monroe (0-0) taking on fellow debutant Charles Jerome (0-0).
In Australia Bryan Peters (5-1, 4) is expected to be in action, albeit against a yet to be named opponent. Peters is one of several fighters who is facing a yet to be named opponent. Whilst Peters is in Australia, it does seem to be something that appears to be a common theme in Europe as Frenchman Mickael Vieira (12-3-1, 6), Englishman Matt Legg (6-2, 2), German Michael Stromberg (4-1, 3) and Turkish born Yakup Saglam (30-3, 27) are all in the same boat. Of those contests we expect to only see Saglam in a title bout as he attempts to claim the German International Heavyweight title.
The only Heavyweight fight that we are aware of in Africa sees Morris Okola (3-0, 2) facing off against the win-less Abbas Alli (0-3) in what looks to be a mismatch.
