Former WBO super middleweight world champion Karoly Balzsay and 2009 amateur world champion “Golden Jack” Culcay will climb into the ring on the July 31 Universum Champions Night at the o2 World Arena in Hamburg, Germany.
Balzsay (21-2, 15 KOs), who is now being trained by Michael Timm, will face Aziz Daari (24-14-4, 20 KOs) in an eight rounder. He is coming off consecutive deafeats to Robert Stieglitz (losing his world title) and Eddy Gutknecht but says he’s on the right track now with Timm.
Culcay (5-0, 3 KOs), the first German Amateur champion in 14 years will take on Ionut Trandafir Ilie (13-4-1) in a junior middleweight bout. “This will be the next level for me,” said Golden Jack. “But I’m hotly looking forward to the challenge.”
Two world title bouts top the card with unbeaten WBC middleweight champion Sebastian Zbik defending against Jorge Heiland and WBA super middleweight champion Dimitri Sartison defending against Khoren Gevor.
