    Russian EBU cruiserweight champion Alexander Alekseev (23-2, 20 KO’s) is making his first defense of his title against 41-year-old former WBA World cruiserweight champion Firat Arslan (32-5-1, 21 KO’s) in what Alekseev is hoping will be an easy fight for him at the EWS Arnea in Goeppingen, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany.

    Alekseev, #4 WBO, #5 WBC, #12 WBA, won the European Boxing Union title in his last fight against Enad Licina last February in an impressive 12 round unanimous decision in Franfurt, Germany. Alekseev’s southpaw stance gave Licina fit, as did Alekseev’s counter punching. He fought really well and made Licina look bad in comparison.
