Petkovic signs TV deal with Sky Germany
Former cruiserweight/heavyweight contender Alexander Petkovic landed a major TV deal in his new role as promoter on the German TV market. His company “Petko’s Boxpromotion” signed a deal with Sky Germany which starts on November 5th. Petkovic will present WBC Youth World Champion Toni Kraft (9-0, 3 KOs) who will take on African knockout artist Abdallah Paziwapazi (13-3, 12 KOs).
In the co-feature, unbeaten WBO Female World Middleweight Champion Christina Hammer (19-0, 9 KOs) hopes to land a unification bout with reigning WBC female titlist Kali Reis (10-5-1, 4 KOs). Hammer and Reis already met in May last year when the German secured a unanimous decision win but was knocked down by powerful Reis in the tenth and last round.
The event which also features Toni’s younger brother James Kraft (9-0, 7 KOs) and former German amateur standout Howik Bebraham (4-0, 1 KO) will take place in Munich, Germany. More details on the show and on the cooperation between Sky and “Petko’s Boxpromotion” will be released shortly.
