SES has just announced that Robin Krasniqi (51-6) and Dominic Boesel (30-2) will do it again October 9 at the Getec Arena in Magdeburg, Germany.
Krasnigi won their first round encounter with a stunning knockout of Boesel to win the IBO and WBA interim light heavyweight titles last October 10, also in Magdeburg.
The ending was a bit controversial as Krasniq landed with a right and Boesel went down – but the referee ruled a slip and waved the fight on as soon as the defending champion was on his feet.
However, Boesel was visibly hurt and was caught by a big right and went down and out with the referee waving the fight off without counting. Had Boesel received the mandatory eight count after “the slip” he might have recovered.
Krasniqi hasn’t fought since while Boesel returned in May in Slovenia with a points win over Czech journeyman Ondrej Budera.
The WBA Interim title is now gone but the IBO crown remains.
