In the past all attempts have failed to bring the “best boxer in the world” to Germany. Now it seems as if Jones, jr. is actually coming – ARENA-CEO Ahmet Öner made it happen!
Markus Beyer (34-3-1, 13 k.o.s) is very proud and excited about the possibility to fight the former world middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight champion who unified seven championship belts in 2001.
Beyer: “If two great fighters and former champions come together for a big fight that always means big money!”
ARENA-CEO Ahmet Öner: “If we can make it and agree on deal I will do all I can to make the fight in Gemany!”
Friday night’s show will be broadcasted live on German Pay-TV station Premiere from 10.30 p.m. (German time) on. There are still some tickets available at the counters. The official weigh-in takes place on Thursday, March 13th at 4 p.m. at the „Kesselhaus“ (Lilienthalallee 29) in Munich.
