In addition to Wladimir Klitschko, the most dominant heavyweight champion defending his WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO world titles against Jean-Marc Mormeck and the co-feature of Gennady Golovkin defending his WBA middleweight title against Lajuan Simon, there will be two more title fights on the December 10 show.
Tom Loeffler, managing director of K2 Promotions: “We just announced Gennady Golovkin fighting as the co-feature on our show last week and now we have added two more title fights.”
NABF Heavyweight Champion, Johnathon Banks, 27-1 with 18 KOs will defend his title against tough contender DaVarryl Williamson. Banks has appeared on many Klitschko shows and will now face one of his most dangerous opponents in DaVarryl Williamson, 27-6 with 23 KOs. Williamson had fought Wladimir Klitschko earlier in his career and is known as a very strong puncher.
Banks: “I am excited to be on the same show with Wladimir and I will show the fans that I am at the top of the heavyweight division. I have fought in the large soccer stadiums in Germany before and I know it will be a great atmosphere in ESPRIT arena.”
Isa Akberbayev, 8-0 with 5 KOs, from Kazakhstan will fight for the vacant IBO Intercontinental Cruiserweight title against local favorite Armin Dollinger, 21-2 with 8 KOs from Munich, Germany.
Undefeated top junior middleweight prospect Tony Harrison will open the show in the first bout. Harrison is trained by the world famous Emanuel Steward who believes his boxer has as much potential as Thomas Hearns when he was coming up.
Loeffler added: “This is by far the best show top to bottom that we have put together. We have two world title fights and two regional fights that are evenly matched. A WBA champion like Golovkin or bouts like Banks vs. Williamson could normally be the main event on a fight night. The fans will definitely get their money’s worth from this great show and we are excited to be able to put it together.”
The fight will be broadcast live and exclusively on RTL in Germany, in the U.S. on ESPN3, ESPN Deportes and also shown in 150 countries worldwide.
