"Universum Champions Night" on July 31 at the o2 World Hamburg

For more then 26 years Hamburg has been the home for Universum Box-Promotion and on July 31 another highlight will be staged. WBC interim middleweight champion Sebastian Zbik will headline the “Universum Champions Night” at the o2 World in Hamburg. Additionally the fans will see an all German championship battle with WBA super middleweight world champion Dimitri Sartison and Khoren Gevor.

The 28 year old Zbik (29-0, 10 KOs) was originally slated to face Khoren Gevor on July 17 Schwerin. There had been tension between Zbik and Universum after Zbik’s July 17 fight fell through, however those issues have been resolved and both are looking to the future. He will now face an “acid test” opponent to be named in the coming days. The WBC has finally signalled that champion Sergio Gabriel Martinez (45-2-2, 24 KOs) will have to face Zbik this fall, and both will take an interim fight. Recently Zbik defended his title in Magdeburg against the tough Italian Domenico Spada.

Sebastian Zbik: “We had a frank conversation and defined our common future. The future plans that Universum has for me, convinced me.” Universum vice Dietmar Poszwa added: „We still have a lot ahead for Sebastian. This is a good chance for a great fight in Hamburg, and then the clash with Martinez!“

Zbik is happy to fight in Hamburg and the big arena. He also can expect a big fan base supporting him in this next fight: "I'm looking forward to fight in this great arena and of course I'm hoping that a lot of my fans will make their way."

German world title clash between Sartison and Gevor

Universum will also present another boxing highlight in the super middleweight division. In an Universum stable challenge WBA world champion Dimitri Sartison (26-1, 17 KOs) will face highly rated Khoren Gevor (31-4, 16 KOs).

Sartison who is trained by Magomed Schaburow became the WBA champion and successor of former champion Mikkel Kessler. Khoren Gevor is now training under Dutchman Roland Germerts in Amsterdam. For this third shot at a world title Gevor will step up in the weight division to super middleweight. In a sensational fight in 2007 he lost to former champion Artur Abraham and in 2009 he was again defeated by Felix Sturm. After returning successfully to the ring in January 2010 he will now have his final chance to become world champion. Dimitri Sartison: „This is a hard fight for both of us. I’m looking forward to this. Khoren is a strong challenger.“ Khoren Gevor: „I’m excited about Dimitri facing me. I’ll fight till they drop – as people expect from me.“

Additional match-ups will be announced within the next days. ZDF will televise the world title fight of Sebastian Zbik live with highlights of the fight Dimitri Sartison vs. Khoren Gevor afterwards.
