German promoter Ulf Steinforth (SES Boxing) sends his best fighters around the world with four title fights scheduled for four weeks in March. “We are looking forward to excellent fights and we hope that our team will be 4-0 at the end of March,” states Steinforth.
The “SES World Tour” will kick off in Potsdam, Germany, on March 2nd when WIBF-, WBF- and WBO female super featherweight champion Ramone Kuehne (19-1, 6 KOs) puts her titles on the line against Halanna Dos Santos (14-4, 9 KOs) from Brazil.

Only one week later (March 9th) former IBF welterweight champion Jan Zaveck (32-2, 18 KOs) takes on unbeaten US knockout artist Keith Thurman (19-0, 18 KOs) at the Barclays Center for the WBO intercontinental championship and the #1 spot in the WBO ratings. The winner will be mandatory challenger of Timothy Bradley jr.

Another seven days after Zaveck’s fight in New York, the SES team goes to London to support their light heavyweight contender Robin Krasniqi (39-2, 15 KOs) in his first world title shot against unbeaten WBO champion Nathan Cleverly (25-0, 12 KOs). The bout takes place at the Wembley Arena on March 16th.

Finally, on March 23rd former WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (43-3, 24 KOs) tries to regain his title against “King” Arthur Abraham (36-3, 28 KOs) in Magdeburg, Germany.
