WBO Youth light heavyweight titleholder Dominic Bösel (11-0, 4 KOs) will now face Chris Mafuta (12-3, 6 KOs) on June 28 at the Maritim Hotel in Halle (Saale), Germany. The bout was pushed back two weeks due to the flooding in the German state of Sachsen-Anhalt that damaged the original fight venue in Weissenfels. “The Elbe and Saale flood held the whole country in suspense and no one could think of boxing,” said promoter Ulf Steinforth.
Dominic Bösel: “When I heard about the flood, I guessed that something would go wrong. Now I boxes in Halle. This is my second home. In any case it is good that the fight is still taking place.”
Chris Mafuto: “Of course, I’m glad that the fight is taking place in Halle. There have been many friends saying they want to see me fight.”
