Manager Boon cancels Karaev's fight. Karacs will fight Spong instead.



The news just came out that ruslan Karaev wo'nt fight Tyrone Spong at the I'ts Showtime Arena Event in Amsterdam May 16th.Quite a disappoitment for the fans.

Ruslan Karaev had to travel a lot of hours to get his visa right. He has arrived in the Netherlands by now, but feels he's not well prepared for the Spong fight. Manager Bas Boon phoned promotor Simon Rutz today , two days for the fight, to cancel. Peter Aerts was asked to replace Karaev, but was injured, so Attila Karacs will fight Spong instead. A big chance for Karacs, but too bad for the fans.

This is the fightrecord of Karacs:

I'm surprised they asked Aerts to stand in... and I'm sorry to hear he's injured!
Too bad this fight isn't gonna be as big as we thought it would be. But who knows, maybe Karacs can deliver more excitement then we expect.

Karacs is on the same level as Zimmerman, when they two met in Amsterdam, Karacs had really a bad luck with his shinbone bleeding so bad they made him step off..

So I guess this one's gonna be a nice match :)

It seems that Karaev had visa problems and did not prepare in Russia. Golden Glory is only willing to let him fight if he will prepare 3 weeks hardcore @ the Golden Glory Gym in Breda, the Netherlands.

@marcelt

Thanks for the info, will be really interesting to see how Spong will do against a large opponent as Karacs. What a great event presented by I'ts Showtime!
