Michel: Bolotniks can’t beat me

German Serge Michel says he is superior to rival Ricards Bolotniks in every department ahead of their Golden Contract 175lbs final on December 2.

‘The Bavarian Sniper’ will challenge Latvian Bolotniks (17-5-1, 7 KOs) for the WBO European light-heavyweight title at Production Park Studios in Wakefield, believing he holds crucial advantages in skill, industry and power.

“I can’t see how Ricards will win the fight against me. I’m the better technician, I’m the better puncher, and I know how my job should look,” said Michel (11-1, 8 KOs).

“I’m very excited for the fight and I know I will win the final and take the WBO European title from Bolotniks. I’m very happy about fighting again in the UK, too.

“Both of my past performances in the UK were great. I did a very good job on those guys and you saw my power in the last fight against [Liam] Conroy [WTKO4].

“My next performance will be just as powerful and, if I wasn’t sure I could stop Bolotniks, then I would not have taken this fight.”

Next week’s bill will also feature Liverpool’s Jazza Dickens against former British featherweight champion Ryan Walsh in the Golden Contract 126lbs final.
