COVID-19:      TEAM SAUERLAND CANCEL EVENT ON APRIL 4TH IN HAMBURG  –  Press release from Sauerland  –

Due to the global spread of COVID-19, Team Sauerland and Universum Boxpromotion have canceled their upcoming night of boxing on April 4th in Hamburg.    For both promoters, the health and safety of the athletes and everyone else present is the top priority.   Even an event without spectators exposes them to unnecessary risks.   We thank everyone for their understanding and we will work with our partners to determine when and in what form the event can be rescheduled.

 

 

October 26th 2019  in London (02 Arena)

Abass Baraou (champ)  WTKO6  John O’Donnell (UK)

Convincing performance by German Abbas Baraou contractually linked to Sauerland Event.   On Saturday evening October 26 last year at the 02 Arena in London, the 24-year-old from Togo defeated his taller southpaw Irish challenger John O’Donnell by TKO6 to retain his WBC International SuperWelter weight crown.   A clear and unquestionable success, obtained outside his home country which shows , in addition to the already recognized technical qualities, the personality of this young boy.
