The card featuring former heavyweight title challenger Frencesco Pianeta (28-1-1, 15 KOs) against Axel Schulz-conqueror Brian Minto (37-6, 24 KOs) at Brandenburg-Halle in Frankfurt/Oder has been moved up a day to October 25. The card also features former light heavy title challenger Robin Krasniqi (40-3, 15 KOs) against Oleksandr Cherviak (13-2-1, 4 KOs).
Both Pianeta and Krasniqi participated in a Wednesday press conference at the the Getgoods.De Logistic Center in Frankfurt/Oder. Getgoods is the main sponsor of SES Boxing.
Francesco Pianeta: I want to defeat Minto, “The Beast.” I have to take care of something. Frankfurt/Oder is closely associated with Axel Schulz and there is some unfinished business. I got lots of experience in the Klitschko fight and I was surprised by the positive reaction. I was very happy. There was a lot to think about for me, but now I’m fired up for Minto. I want to beat “the Beast!”
Robin Krasniqi: I am glad not only about being in Frankfurt/ Oder, but the fact that I can again win the European championship here like two years ago. If I win this fight, this is a gigantic step toward my next world title shot.”
