The BOXXER Team Set to Take on Poland with Caroline Dubois and Martin Bakole Leading the Way
BOXXER, the UK-based promotional team, is set to partner with Knockout Promotions for the upcoming Alen Babic-Lukasz Rozanski WBC Bridgerweight title fight. The event is scheduled to take place on April 22 in Rzeszow, Poland, and BOXXER’s fighters will feature prominently on the undercard.
Caroline Dubois, a 2020 Great Britain Olympian, will be the star attraction of the BOXXER-led undercard. Dubois, who is known for her quick hands and explosive power, has a record of 6-0 with five knockouts. The 22-year-old southpaw recently celebrated her one-year pro anniversary with a third-round stoppage of Feriche Mashaury in February.
Joining Dubois on the undercard will be heavyweight contender Martin Bakole, who will be making his BOXXER debut against Ukraine’s Ihor Shevadzutskyi. Bakole, who has a record of 18-1 with 13 knockouts, is coming off an upset victory over 2016 Olympic Gold medalist Tony Yoka in May 2021.
The event will mark BOXXER’s second foray into continental Europe, following a successful show in Paris earlier this year. BOXXER founder and CEO Ben Shalom is excited about the upcoming event in Poland, stating that “Another significant European adventure awaits…we believe that this fight night in Poland will be hugely impactful in the world of boxing.”
The Babic-Rozanski fight is courtesy of Knockout Promotions, who won the rights to the event at a January 31 purse bid hearing. Rozanski, who has a record of 14-0 with 13 knockouts, is the next highest ranked contender below Babic. The unbeaten Polish contender has fought exclusively in his home country throughout his seven-year pro career.
Babic, on the other hand, has emerged as a cult favorite on the UK boxing scene since turning pro in 2019. The Croatian boxer, who is promoted by Matchroom Boxing, has campaigned at the bridgerweight limit and is now just one win away from his first major title.
The event promises to be an exciting night of boxing, with BOXXER’s fighters looking to make a statement on the global stage. With Dubois and Bakole leading the way, the BOXXER team will once again hit the road, hoping to come back with a haul of victories and further cement their place in the world of boxing.
