As the June 12 event is one of the first live Boxing events available since the COVID-19 pandemic postponed all live sporting events – and the first televised professional Boxing event to be streamed/televised from Europe since March – Boxing World Weekly is thrilled to collaborate with Agon Sports to help bring Boxing back to the masses!

Berlin’s Senate authorizes boxing event! The first in training, the first in the ring!
Once again, Berlin’s boxing promoter AGON defies the Corona crisis and will organize a boxing event despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Senate of Germany’s capital approved the event application of AGON’s Sports Manager Dr. Strickrodt.
Under strict hygiene and safety regulations AGON will conduct eight fights in Berlin’s “Havelstudios” on Friday, June 12th.
Due to the Corona regulations of the senate, only persons directly involved in the event, such as boxers, coaches, and judges are allowed to participate. Spectators are not allowed.
AGON’s last event with three championship fights had to be canceled due to Corona. As far as circumstances permit, AGON will make up for the canceled championship fights on June 12th. This means that Jack Culcay will defend his WBO-International title and Björn Schicke his EBU-EU title. Vincenzo Gualtieri will tackle the German National championship.
AGONs-CEO Ingo Volckmann is glad to be back in the ring: “For us, the event means a further step back to normal.”
The fights are available on bild.de on June 12th.
