On September 24th Darnell Wilson upset former WBC cruiserweight champion and world heavyweight championship contender Juan Carlos Gomez at a Universum show in Hamburg, Germany. Now ARENA-CEO Ahmet Oner signed an exclusive promotional deal with the “Ding-A-Ling Man.”
“Beating a home fighter like Gomez at a Universum show in Germany is almost impossible but Darnell won that fight in impressive fashion,” states Oner. “I think Darnell made himself a name in Germany and he should enter the world ratings now so it made sense for us to sign the deal.”

And we’re not just talking about Aldo’s days without interviews and appearances as WEC champion and then UFC kingpin in the 145-pound division.

WBO/WBA/IBF/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (56-3, 49 KOs) will come back to Düsseldorf, Germany, for his next title defense. The undisputed super champion of the heavyweight division will be challenged by Frenchman Jean-Marc Mormeck (36-4, 22 KOs) at the ESPRIT Arena on December 10. The stadium is the homefield of the German soccer club Fortuna Düsseldorf. Mormeck is a former unified cruiserweight champion and unbeaten since moving to heavyweight in 2009. It will be Klitschko’s 20th World Championship fight.
Wladimir Klitschko: “I know that I am the favorite in all my fights but I also know that each opponent is motivated to be in the best shape ever when he fights me. Mormeck is one of the most experienced fighters I have ever faced. He has had many world title fights, has a very good technique, can take a lot of punches and is very intelligent inside the ring. To underestimate him would be a fatal mistake. I am very happy to return to the ESPRIT Arena where I fought against Eddie Chambers. The spectators and the atmosphere for that fight were great and I am sure it will be again this time.”
Jean-Marc Mormeck: “I can imagine what the odds will look like for me against Wladimir Klitschko. But I know my skills. I had Haye on the canvas and shortly before a knock out which Klitschko could not do. What I missed out against Haye I will now do with him. Wladimir has a glass chin which I will break. He cannot stand punches. Against his brother Vitali I would have thought longer about fighting him but against Wladimir I believe I have very good chances. On December 11, I will travel back to Paris with a suitcase full of championship belts. I enjoy being the underdog in this fight and I will shock the boxing world!”
The fight will be broadcast live on RTL in Germany and also shown in 120 countries worldwide. The official ticket sale starts on www.eventim.de on October 12.
