Statement of Universum Box-Promotion regarding the incident at the "Universum Champions Night" on May 19th
21.05.07 - Universum Box-Promotion GmbH distances oneself from the incident that happened during the "Universum Champions Night" at the Color Line Arena in Hamburg last Saturday night. All the security procedures at a Universum boxing event are supervised and taken care of by our partner Pütz Security for many years and we are very satisfied with their work. A right wing extremist background that has been said in a different press release is not true. In our collaboration with Pütz Security there has never been such an incident as the Pütz Security has employed an important number of people that have an international background. Every suspicion, that this was a direct attack against Mr. Öner and his accompanists is incorrect. With the fact that it was a public sporting event as well as an anniversary for Universum with it has to be referred as totally absurd..
Universum Promoter Klaus–Peter Kohl: “I’m very sorry about this incident at the anniversary of my 250th boxing event and that someone got injured. We wanted to celebrate this special night with our guests, athletes and our team. We have nothing to do with this incident. We are working hard for a good reputation and successful boxing business and we will keep on doing this.”
