Ceylan Rematches Sanchez For
EU Title On Nov. 24 In Aarhus
Dennis Ceylan (19-2-2, 8 KOs) rematches Jesus Sanchez (9-1,
2 KOs) for the EU Featherweight title on November 24 at the
Ceres Arena in Aarhus, Denmark.
Ceylan says it is ‘all or nothing’ as he looks to avenge the
shock second-round knockout defeat he suffered to Sanchez on
March 10 at the Struer Energi Park, and reclaim European
honours having previously held the EBU Featherweight strap.
“I am very happy to get the rematch with Sanchez,” said
Ceylan. “He caught me with a good shot last time, but I was
up and ready to continue, and I don’t think the fight should
have been stopped, but I can’t blame the referee, I should
have I kept my hands up and not given him the opportunity.
“This time it will be different. I’m not afraid of this guy.
He may have beaten me before but it won’t happen again. Now,
I want revenge. This fight is all or nothing for me. If I
win, my career is back on track, but if I lose, I will
Sanchez returns to Denmark full of confidence following his
impressive knockout win, and has vowed to get the better of
Ceylan for a third-time having reportedly schooled the
Danish boxer in a sparring session prior to their first
“We sparred together in 2017 while you were training in
Madrid, and I got the best out of you. We fought in Struer,
and I knocked you out. The third time we meet, it will not
be any different,” says the Spanish Champion.
“It’s always dangerous to predict a knockout because you
risk looking for a big punch and opening yourself up for
counters. Therefore, I am happy to simply predict a win – be
it on points or inside the distance.”
Promoter Nisse Sauerland says he is excited to bring
big-time boxing back to Aarhus, and has warned Ceylan must
‘be at his best’ to defeat Sanchez.
“We look forward to returning to Aarhus for another
fantastic night of boxing on November 24,” said Sauerland.
“Dennis suffered a heavy defeat last time he shared a ring
with Sanchez, but now he has the chance for revenge!
“After a tough 12 months, winning the EU title will be a
huge boost for Dennis’ career and can bring him back into
EBU and World title contention, but as we saw in March, he
will need to be at his best to beat Sanchez.”
The EU Featherweight Championship contest between Dennis
Ceylan and Jesus Sanchez will top the bill at the Ceres
Arena in Aarhus on November 24 with a full undercard
featuring the very best of Danish boxing set to be
