The highlight of this night of boxing, held on 16th July, will be twelve rounds of boxing for the European Middleweight Championship Crown, between Germany's Sebastian Sylvester and Morrade Hakkar from France. In addition to this highlight, the boxing night will consist of another six bouts, one of them with the popular German fighter Danilo Häusler.
