Heavyweight contender Denis Boytsov (33-0, 26 KOs) will step into the ring for Team Sauerland in the near future. The unbeaten 27-year-old who was previously in the now insolvent Universum Box-Promotion stable, signed a long term contract (until end 2015) with Sauerland Event. “After Denis was officially without a contract, we immediately tried to bring him over to us,” said Sauerland managing director Chris Meyer. “Promoters around the world were interested in signing him. But in the end – and we are extremely happy about it – Denis has decided to join our team.” Boytsov will move from Hamburg to Berlin and be trained by Karsten Rower. His first fight for Sauerland will be in the Fall.
