Default Re: Lee Haskins v Stephane Jamoye - EBU title - July 7 in Bristol

Only just noticed that. It's for the WBC silver belt against Jose Salgado. Salgado is very beatable and a win would give Jamoye a high WBC ranking.

Plus it's at super-fly which is Jamoye's preferred weight. Since Haskins's promoter won the purse bid it looks like they will just draft in a replacement from the rankings.

1 Zhanat ZHAKIYANOV (KZ) EE-EU Champion
2 Craig LYON (GB)
3 Stuart HALL (GB)
4 Anthony SETTOUL (FR)
5 Ivan POZO (ES)
6 Jerome ARNOULD (FR)

Not a great list sadly. Looks like Haskins will have the title handed to him on a plate, unless the EBU make him fight Zhakiyanov (who is now being promoted by Hatton). Hall would be a decent test as well.
