Sebastian Sylvester vs. Grzegorz Proksa on October 1 for EBU middleweight title
Sebastian Sylvester (34-4-1, 16 KOs) will return to the ring on October 1 when he faces unbeaten Grzegorz Proksa (25-0, 18 KOs) for the vacant European Middleweight Title. The fight will take place at the Jahnsportforum in Neubrandenburg. It will be the Hurricane´s first bout since losing his International Boxing Federation (IBF) Middleweight Title to Daniel Geale in May. “I am really looking forward to this clash,” Sylvester said. “The initial plan was to participate in an elimination tournament for another world title shot but then I got the chance to fight for the vacant European itle. This is a great opportunity and I will make the most of it. However, it´s a risky fight to take. It´s all or nothing. If I lose, it will be a long way back to the top. But I am very confident of success.”

Coach Karsten Roewer expects a tough battle. “Proksa is very aggressive and makes a lot of pressure. And he is a southpaw. It will be a tough fight. But if Sebastian does his homework, he will be successful.”
