On Saturday November 17 at the Heinz Gerlach Halle in Bad Münstereifel, Germany, big-punching Benjamin Blindert will fight Teemu Tuominen from Finland for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) Eurasia Super Middleweight title.

Turning professional late at thirty in November of 2016, Blindert has since put together a fine 8-0 (7) record and is now ready to take on his biggest challenge to date in Tuominen (35), a pro since 2011 with a respectable 10-4 (6) ledger.

Besides Finland, Tuominen has boxed in Mexico, USA, Canada, Latvia and Germany, so he will be no stranger to going abroad for a big opportunity. He is by far the more experienced of the two, but Blindert still enters the fight a healthy favourite.

On the same night, in Courbevoie, France, Youssouf Doumbia and Idaas Redjdal will clash for the vacant WBF All Africa Middleweight title. Both are based in France, but Doumbia is originally from the Ivory Coast, while Redjdal was born in Algeria.

Home-town-man Doumbia has fought too many good opponents to mention, including fourteen unbeaten boxers (going 3-9-2 against them), which has had its effect on his deceiving 11-24-5 (1) record. But he has won two of his last three, and is reportedly in the shape of his life ahead of Redjdal, 8-1-1 (0).
