Abdoul, who still insists his best weight is at lightheavy, take on Nuri Seferi July 2 in Vienna for the vacant WBO European title – which look a little strange considering that the WBO had sanctioned Nenad Borovcanin vs Konstantin Semerdiev this past weekend for the WBO European interim title.
 
Former IBF middleweight champ Sebastian Sylvester will take on Sam Soliman in an eliminator where the winner will fight the winner of Roman Karmazin vs Osumanu Adama.

Sylvester vs Soliman will go ahead sometime during the early fall.
