The 27-year-old Levin has a record of 28-1 with 22 knockouts and has won 14 straight, 11 by knockout.
Levin has fought three times this year, most recently Oct. 4 in Zwickau, Germany, when he knocked out Kenny Craven in the second round. The other two bouts were on a Cedric Kushner Promotions' "Everlast Heavyweight Explosion" card May 24 in Reno, Nev., when he took a 10-round unanimous decision over Fernely Feliz, and a show April 18 in Tampa, Fla., when he stopped Gary Winmon in the first round.
The 6-foot-4-inch, 245-pound Levin, who's originally Stockholm, Sweden, but now lives in Miami Beach, Fla., is fighting in Germany for the second time.
"I enjoy fighting in Germany and I'm looking forward to doing it again," said Levin. "I'm going to continue to keep busy so I can appear in bigger fights and get rated in the top 10 in 2004," said Levin.
"Attila's time is now," said Dundee, who, along with Luis Lagerman, co-trains Levin. "He's going to shine in 2004."
The 37-year-old Franco has a record of 21-11 with 17 knockouts and is the former World Boxing Association Fedelatin and South American heavyweight champion.
