News: Selcuk Aydin; Plotnikov vs Bladt; Ustinov vs Vidoz

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan received WBC welterweight champion Selcuk Aydin at a special press conference in Ankara. On June 5th Aydin had won the first ever professional boxing world title fight on Turkish soil by outpointing Canada based Romanian "Jo-Jo Dan" Ion in front of 10,000 fans in Istanbul..

"The Prime Minister congratulated Selcuk and also said that he hopes for a unification bout between Selcuk and WBC champion Andre Berto in Turkey before the end of this year", says promoter Ahmet ÷ner. "We will do all we can to make this fight happen but I don't know if Berto has the guts to travel to Turkey to defend his title abroad. If we can realize this fight we will most probably do it at a huge stadium because so many Turkish fans will come to support their new national hero Selcuk."

"I want to prove that I am the best welterweight boxer in the world", adds Aydin. "I know that there are a lot of big names in the division at the moment but I am ready to take on each and every one of them. Berto, Mosley, Mayweather, Pacquiao - I donít care. Of course, I would prefer to fight in Turkey - it would be a dream to defend my title in my hometown Trabzon - but I am not afraid of traveling either as long as I get the chance to fight the best possible opponents."
