“We are very happy to have won the bid and we are pleased to promote this fight for Nikolai,” said Sauerland Event General Manager Chris Meyer. “We intend to stage the bout on May 30. We have targeted Helsinki, Finland as the location but will announce further details in the next days. Effective June 1 there will just be one WBA heavyweight champion. All boxing fans will finally know who the real champion is. We thank the WBA for the quick course of action. This gives us the chance to put the record straight on May 30.”
