WBO Youth light heavyweight beltholder Dominic Boesel (11-0, 4 KOs) and Chris Mafuta (12-3, 6 KOs) faced off at a press conference for Friday’s clash in Halle/Salle, Germany. The bout was delayed for two weeks due to flooding. In one highlight, Mafuto’s trainer Frank Marchl accused Boesel of removing video of all his fights from YouTube, a charge denied by Boesel who promised to supply a DVD with his fights to the Mafuto camp.

Dominic Boesel: The first title defense is supposed to be the hardest, but still I feel no pressure. The excitement is slowly rising but that’s completely normal. In no uncertain terms: I will keep the title!

Chris Mafuto: “It doesn’t matter if we fight here in my hometown, the important thing is that we will finally box. I want the belt on me and my trainer and I predict a KO victory ahead. “
