Pianeta will face McCall now

Heavyweight Francois Botha has sustained a hand injury in sparring and pulled out of his May 16 clash with SES heavyweight Francesco Pianeta (25-0-1, 14 KOs) in Frankfurt/Oder, Germany. However, former WBC champion Oliver McCall (56-11, 37 KOs) has jumped in on short notice. “Oliver McCall is at least a similar boxer-type and the same size as Botha. But he also comes with a lot of experience and therefore is a few places higher in the world rankings. I think the task in Frankfurt/Oder is not so simple!”

FIGHT PROMOTER U To Be Offered Online

With the success of the past seven sessions of Fight Promoter University, with nearly 150 FPU alumni around the world, and the next session of Fight Promoter University set for June 5-8, founder and fight promoter Roy Englebrecht announced today that the entire FPU VIII four day session will now be available online, with the entire four days of classes streaming live on PPV.

“Over the past few years so many people have contacted me stating how much they want to come to a FPU session, but for some reason the date didn’t work for them, or that they were in another country and the travel costs and visa requirements just made it too difficult, so I had to come up with an answer, said Englebrecht. “With our June 5-8 FPU VIII session we are announcing that all of the 17 classroom sessions and 18 guest speakers will be available live and online to anymore on the planet for only $499. Plus, we will also include the newly updated 320 page Fight Promoter University Manual, a must for any new or existing fight promoter, plus anyone watching online can tweet their questions in real time to any speaker and get answer. Also if you can’t watch some of the classes, the entire FPU VIII session will be archived for 60 days, so people that purchase the PPV have 60 days to watch each session as many times as they want.” (more…)
