Bunn Defends IBF International Title In Koblenz
Undefeated German light heavyweight Leon Bunn (14-0, 8 KOs)
will defend his IBF International title on November 2 at the
CGM Arena in Koblenz.
Team Sauerland and Bunn return to the CGM Arena for the
second time this year following a successful show on
February 16 that saw the 27-year-old Frankfurt-native claim
a unanimous points win over Viktor Polyakov (13-6-1, 6 KOs).
Bunn is back in action following a career best ninth-round
TKO victory over Leon Harth (18-4, 12 KOs) on May 4 in his
hometown at the Fraport Arena, where he claimed his first
professional honour by winning the IBF International belt.
“I am pleased to be able to box again in Koblenz,” said
Bunn. “I hope my fans get behind me and support me. I’m
going full throttle in my preparation to ensure I give
everyone a great performance and an exciting evening of
Also on the bill is 17-year-old sensation Sophie Alisch
(4-0, 1 KO), who began life in the pro ranks at the CGM
Arena on February 16 scoring an explosive first-round
knockout win over Sopo Kintsurashvili. The Berlin-boxer will
be looking for victory number five as she continues her
promising career in Koblenz.
The show, named ‘Fighting For Future’, is a special evening
that will see Team Sauerland partner with AWR Abbruch GmbH
and Holefeld Promotion and the ticket revenue and money
raised from the evening will be donated to three charities:
Laughing Hearts, a charity that provides support and
opportunities to children affected by poverty, Parents'
Initiative for Children with Cancer Koblenz, who provide
support to the parents of children suffering from cancer in
Koblenz and Education Unlimited, an education charity who
encourage diversity and training across Europe.
"We have great memories of our last fight night in Koblenz
and we look forward to returning in November,” said promoter
Nisse Sauerland. "We are delighted to support these three
important causes and thank AWR Abbruch GmbH and Holefeld for
their ideas and commitment on the ground. Leon and Sophie
will do their part to make ensure the evening is a sporting
success as well!”
