BOXXER branches out to Poland this Saturday evening, as Alen Babic vies for the vacant WBC bridgerweight title against home hope Lukasz Rozanski.

Sky Sports televise Rozanski vs Babic in the UK.

The contest takes place at the relative new weight between heavyweight and cruiserweight, and Oscar Rivas was forced to vacate the inaugural belt, due to an eye injury.

Babic (11-0, 10 KOs) is a big puncher, and has mainly laid out domestic level fighters, and faded forces in his professional career.

‘The Savage’ was taken the distance for the first time in his last contest, dropped in the opening round against Adam Balski at the O2 Arena in London last May, before taking a ten round decision win.

This one isn’t likely to go the championship distance, as Rozanski (14-0, 13 KOs) can also bang.

The Pole went the four round distance in his second fight, but it has been all inside schedule since.

His last outing was in May 2021, where he knocked out former heavyweight world title challenger, Artur Szpilka in a round.

Prediction: This should be a shootout, and Rozanski’s ring rust will be a concern. Babic is raw and rugged, and I can see him catching Rozanski early on. I favour Babic to win within four to become new champion.

Bakole battles Shevadzutskyi

Martin Bakole (18-1, 13 KOs) looks to build on his majority decision win against Tony Yoka last year, and the heavyweight can inflict the first defeat on the record of Ihor Shevadzutskyi (10-0, 8 KOs) with an inside schedule success. The contest is set for ten.

Cieslak-Bregeon clash for European crown

The vacant European cruiserweight title is also at stake, and Michal Cieslak (23-2, 17 KOs) can become the new champion with a points win against Dylan Bregeon (12-2-1, 3 KOs).

Remaining Undercard

The second vacant European title match comes at super bantamweight, where Poland’s Laura Grzyb (8-0, 3 KOs) should outscore Italy’s Maria Cecchi (8-1, 2 KOs), who challenged for the belt in May last year, losing widely on the cards.

At light heavyweight, Steed Woodall (17-1-1, 11 KOs) can bank eight rounds and take a points win against Boris Creighton (11-2, 7 KOs), and in heavyweight action, Jeamie Tshikeva (4-0, 2 KOs) can stop Michal Boloz (5-4-2, 5 KOs) inside their scheduled six.

Also at heavyweight, Piotr Lacz (5-0, 5 KOs) can halt Milos Budincic (2-4-1). Their contest is also set for six.

In the battle of the debutants, Adrianna Jedrzejczyk can outpoint Monika Lis over four at super welterweight.

Meanwhile, Tobiasz Zarzeczny (2-0, 1 KO) can outscore debutant Andrija Kuzman also over four rounds at super welterweight and Daniel Plonka can win his first professional fight with a points victory over Marko Petricevic (0-6).
