European heavyweight title vacated

With European heavyweight champion Robert Helinius out of action for six months due to a shoulder injury requiring surgery, the EBU has vacated the belt and ordered Alexander Dimitrenko (32-1, 21 KOs) to face the highest ranked available contender, which is Kubrat Pulev (5-0, 7 KOs). Universum (Dimitrenko) and Sauerland Event (Pulev) will now have a free negotiation period and if no agreement is reached, the EBU will order a purse bid.

    For 18 years, Fightnews.com® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
