The Magdeburg boxing stable SES returns after a four-month Corona break. “Sport im Osten” will broadcast the ring comeback live on Saturday evening.


On July 18, the heavyweights Agit Kabayel and Evgenios Lazaridis will fight for the WBA Continental title on the Magdeburg lake stage. Kabayel became Europe’s heavyweight champion at the same location four years ago. The ex-European champion won 19 victories in 19 fights, 13 of them by knockout. His opponent Lazaridis is a multiple Greek champion (18 fights, 16 wins, 10 of them by knockout).

In addition, Peter Kadiru and Ruben Wolf compete in the ring at the boxing gala. According to the MDR, this is essentially a duel between the generations. Ruben Wolf is ten years older than 23-year-old Peter Kadiru. In 2019, Wolf won each of his five fights, all in his adopted home Austria, where he has lived for a long time.

“Sport in the East” will broadcast the boxing evening live on MDR television and in the stream. The broadcast starts on July 18th at 10:35 p.m. At the evening, an extensive hygiene concept is to be implemented, which has been worked on in the past four months.
