Masternak looking to be new European cruiserweight champ

Polish cruiserweight contender Mateusz Masternak 28-0, 21 KO’s gets a shot at the European title on December 15th when the hot prospect takes on Juho Haapoja 18-2-1, 11 KO’s in Nuremberg. The pair will be fighting for the vacant title after current champ Alexander Alekseev was stripped of the belt by the EBU for having vague medical records.

“We are happy to announce that we have added another title fight to our event in Nuremberg,” said promoter Nisse Sauerland. “Unfortunately, Mateusz Masternak won’t get the chance to take the belt of Alexander Alekseev as he does not hold it anymore. However, we found a good replacement in Juho Haapoja. As the current European Union Champion, he will make up for an attractive matchup against Masternak.” This fight will also mark the first chance for “The Master” to win a championship under the promotional banner of Team Sauerland.”
