Mabika vs. Buchholz, WBF International Title Fight In Luxembourg
Differdange, Luxembourg (June 14th, 2016)– Originally scheduled to fight for the title in his native Gabon next month, Taylor Mabika will now take on Germany’s Lars Buchholz for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) International Cruiserweight crown on Friday, June 17, at the Centre Sportif Obercorn in Differdange, Luxembourg.
Former African and Luxembourg national champion Mabika turned professional almost exactly eight years ago, on June 20 2008, and has since compiled a fine 14-2-1 (8) record, fighting in places such as France, Germany, Poland, and of course Gabon and Luxembourg.
One of his two losses came by decision to current WBO World Champion Krzysztof Glowacki, then 18-0, after a hard fight in 2013. He has since rebounded well, and last year he scored an emphatic fourth round stoppage over former European champion, and WBO world title-challenger, Yuriy Barashian.
In Lars Buchholz, 27-8 (2), he will be facing a tricky and dangerous foe, who has showed in his previous fights that he carries significant power in both hands. The former German champion has yet to beat any big names, but he has mixed with top-class operators before and been part of major championship fights.
Only this past March he challenged for the WBF World Cruiserweight title, when he stepped in on a few days notice to fight defending champion Zine Eddine Benmakhlouf in Algeria, when the original opponent fell out. Buchholz retired after six rounds, but put on a commendable performance.
Now the 34-year-old from Berlin gets another chance to win a significant title, and this time he has had more than a few days to prepare. Both men has experience from big fights, and both men can certainly punch, so an entertaining and potentially explosive encounter is expected.
