Universum Box-Promotion has announced a big November 19 show at the Universum Gym in Hamburg, Germany, featuring former WBA heavyweight champion Ruslan Chagaev (mandatory challenger for David Haye), unbeaten heavyweight Denis Boytsov, unbeaten Olympic gold medalist Rachim Tschachkijew, former amateur world champion Jack Culcay, unbeaten heavyweight Manuel Charr and unbeaten featherweight Marcel Meyerdiercks.
Universum has also announced two new broadcast partners. SPORT1 will televise the fights of Chagaev (26-1-1, 17 KOs), Boytsov (27-0, 22 KOs) and Tschachkijew (6-0, 5 KOs). Opponents will be named in the coming days. The fight of Culcay (6-0, 4 KOs) will be webcast live on BILD.de.
“We’re offering great preparatory fights to the fans for the big fights in 2011,” said promoter Klaus-Peter Kohl. “The guys should confirm their form for the big matches. Ruslan will give an example for David Haye and Denis Boytsov will test his surgically repaired hand. In addition, Hamburg fight fans haven’t seen Ruslan Chagaev live for four years and Denis Boytsov for more than three years. This is the time.”
