Leon Bauer (15-0-1, 9 KOs), Sophie Alisch (1-0, 1 KO) and Limi Tairi (4-0, 3 KOs) return to action on the undercard of Patrick Wojcicki’s IBF Intercontinental Middleweight title fight against Marcelo Fabian Caceres on April 6 in Wolfsburg.
The rising German stars are the latest additions to a stacked card at the CongressPark, which also features the hotly anticipated rematch between Denis Radovan and Ronny Mittag for the IBF European Middleweight crown.
Bauer will contest his first fight since signing a contract extension with Team Sauerland, against the tough Argentinian Mateo Damian Veron (28-22-3, 8 KOs). Veron is a dangerous operator, who cannot be underestimated, especially after upsetting veteran Lolenga Mock on points in January.
“Mateo Damian Veron is tough and experienced boxer, but someone I have to beat to achieve my goals,” said Bauer, the 20 year-old from Hatzenbuehl.
Alisch returns to the ring for her second professional fight, having blasted out Sopo Kintsurashvili in the first-round on her debut in Koblenz on February 16. The 17-year-old now faces Alina Zaitseva (1-1) in her first six-round bout.
Having claimed her first victory inside 52 seconds, Alisch insists she has no issue going the distance if needed. “We often work over six or eight rounds in training, so it will be no problem for me,” said the Berlin-boxer.
Local hero Tairi is back in Wolfsburg, where he claimed a sixth-round knockout win over Istvan Kun on October 6, and is looking forward to boxing in front of his home fans again as he takes on Hungary’s Tomas Kozma (6-8-3, 3 KOs).
“I would like to thank Team Sauerland. It’s great to box in Wolfsburg again,” he said. “I have already sold many tickets to my friends and fans, and I will do my part to create a great atmosphere at the CongressPark on April 6.”
Patrick Wojcicki defends his IBF Intercontinental Middleweight title fight against Marcelo Fabian Caceres at the CongressPark in Wolfsburg on April 6, while Denis Radovan rematches Ronny Mittag for the IBF European Middleweight title.
Leon Bauer faces Mateo Damian Veron over eight-rounds in the super middleweight division, Sophie Alisch meets Alina Zaitseva in a six-round featherweight contest, and Limi Tairi is scheduled for eight-rounds against cruiserweight rival Tomas Kozma.
