30.1.07 – By Per Ake Persson: Female flies Susianna Kentikian and Carolina Alvarez clash for vacant WBA title February 16 in Cologne in a fight between stablemates. In the co-headliner Sebastian Zbik take on Dane (licensed in Germany) Fawaz Nasir for the vacant WBO I/C middleweight belt. Nasir thus skips the planned fight against Malik Dziarra February 17 in Magdeburg. On the undercard, Vitali Tajbert takes on Italian Alessandro Di Meco. Heavyweight Sebastian Kober is also on the bill. The show, promoted by Spotlight Boxing, is televised by ProSieben.
Heavyweight Luan Krasnigi will have WBA bantam champ Wladimir Sidorenko as co-headliner March 17 in Stuttgart. Sidorenko is rumored – there have been reports on some internet sites that it is already signed – to be defending the title against Panamanian Ricardo Cordoba. Sidorenko and Cordoba drew a year ago in Hamburg. WBO I/C heavy ruler Aleksander Dimitrenko is also on the bill.
WBC Int´l heavy champ Sinan Samil Sam is almost set to defend the title against a “big big” name May 12 in Istanbul in what will be the first major league boxing event in Turkey since the days of EBU jr welter titleholder Cemal Kamaci in the early 70´s. The date might change to avoid a clash with the Vitali Klitschko vs. Oleg Maskaev showdown that might happen on the very same night.
Cuban heavy Juan Carlos Gomez is in training under Phil Paolina in California but wants to return to Hamburg. However there are still visa problems. Gomez dreams of fighting Wladimir Klitschko but have to get past a few guys before he´s taken for real again after his one year suspension that ended this past December. Arena Box Promotion are at the moment trying to get Gomez on the second of their two promotions February 10 in Hamburg. The day kicks off at the Arena gym with three fights, among them jr middle Aleksander Sipos and heavyweight Goran Gogic. In the evening at the Hotel Elysee the remaining nine fights (or ten) will go ahead.
Nigerian jr light Robert Osiobe, now based in Denmark, is in full training for a comeback. Osiobe had his last four fights in Denmark as an “opponent” and went 0-1-3 against the likes of Spend Abazi, Martin Kristjansen and Jadgar Abdulla in 03 and 04. Robert will be managed by Robert Larsen, who also trains him. Larsen have just been given a manager´s license by the Danish Federation and says he has “big plans”. Robert also have a company that sells videos / dvds that can be checked out at larsenboxing.dk. As for his own career the former amateur fighter says it´s on hold after a rib injury.
