Unhappy Why won't Universum just let the boxers go?

Universum has no TV contract and so no money is coming in. They cannot do much for talented fighters like Jack Culcay, Denis Boytsov and Rahkim Chakhkiev and are ruining them with inactivity and lack of quality opposition.

For example, Denis Boytsov has been healthy and ready to fight since early April, but has fought only once during that time, against a soft opponent.

Right now, Jack Culcay is scheduled to fight on the Sauerland card on Saturday in Finland. There are reports of Universum taking legal action against Sauerland if he goes through with it.

Boytsov, Chakhkiev, Culcay and the others seem to have two choices: remain inactive with Universum and be ruined financially and decline athletically, or go and fight for another promoter.

Does anyone know more about the situation these fighters are in with Universum? I hate seeing talent going to waste.

Universum really likes to ruin fighters ! Felix Sturm bought himself out of their contract for 900 000 euro! Then they had golovkin ...
But hey they really have something in boytsov and especially Chakhkiev!
he looks like 1 million dollars! i hope these guys find a way to get their career going!

Erdei and Dzinziruk went through legal battles to leave too.

Dimitrenko apparently is leaving! Thats good.

Also I can say I'm glad about Rakhim Chakhkiev's next fight. He will face Alexander Kotlobay on 1-28. Good test. Universum did something right for once.
