European super welterweight champion and SES fighter Lukas Konecny (46-3, 22 KOs) will have his first mandatory title defense on May 27 in his Czech hometown of Usti nad Labem. He will jeopardize his belt against Frechman Hussein Bayram (34-3, 19 KOs). The fight at the Zlatopramen Arena in Usti will also be a special moment for the first European champion in the Czech boxing history. Lukas Konecny, one longest members in the SES boxing team, will step into the ring in his 50th pro fight. “In this jubilee I want to shine especially in front of my fans. Bayram will have no chance. Besides I haven’t reached my biggest goal yet as I want to win the world title,” the 32 year old Konecny said. In order to increase his chances for a world title fight very soon he will also fight for the WBO interconti belt alongside his Euro title. He is currently on the short list of the EBU to be named “Athlete of the year.” As one of the most successful professional athletes of the Czech Republic he already receives a high recognition. Lukas Konecny has been named the national coach of the Czech Amateur boxing team.
