Euro News: Culcay vs. Baraou in Play, Marco Huck Update, More

    When former WBA ‘regular’ super welterweight champion Jack Culcay beat Howard Cospolite earlier this month, he was asked what he might do next and the reply was ‘why not a showdown against Abass Baraou’ – in what would be an excellent matchup and a German mega-fight featuring veteran vs. newcomer, young vs. old and you name it.

    Now it appears that the fight is on its way with a deal close and might go ahead in the Havel studios in Berlin on August 26 on an AGON Sports promotion.

    Baraou is 9-0 and is promoted by Team Sauerland while Culcay is 28-4 and a former Sauerland fighter. Both have had the still hospitalized Ulli Wegner as trainer and he tells BILD it will be an excellent fight but decline to pick a winner.


    65 seconds – that was it all it took for Vaclav Pejsar (15-9) to stop David Vicena (12-18-2) to win vacant Czech cruiserweight title.

    This fight headlined a big show at Pub Eden in Usti nad Labem and it was held outdoors with a crowd of about 600 in attendance – and yes it did begin to rain which caused a delay in the fighting.

    In the co-feature heavyweight Tomas Salek (12-2) stopped veteran Tomas Mrazek (10-73-6).

    Former WBO cruiser king Marco Huck (41-5-1) is in training for his first fight since May of 2019.

    The plan is to have a comeback fight on the rooftop of Hotel Maritim in Braunlage in August, reports BILD. Huck is now campaigning as a heavyweight and is still the mandatory challenger for the vacant EBU title.

    Huck Box Promotion won purse bids for a showdown against Olympic silver medal winner Joe Joyce – but then Huck, the fighter, suffered an injury and withdrew.

    Then, Daniel Dubois entered the scene with Huck to face the winner of Joyce vs Dubois – which takes place in October.
