The newly founded P2M boxing promotion from Hamburg celebrated a successful premiere at the weekend. 400 invited guests saw a high-class organized event in the impressive Porsche Center Hamburg.
Two women’s world titles to start with
Dilar Kisikyol (30/Hamburg) secured the world championship crown in the lightweight against Eva Hubmayer (Euskirchen). Dilar Kisikyol: “I’m over the moon and now I know what I’ve trained and worked so hard for.”
In the main fight of the evening, Nina Meinke (29/Berlin) fulfilled her dream of winning the World Championship and defeated Edith Soledad Matthysse from Argentina in an exciting and dramatic fight. Coach Kay Huste: “That was the expected tough World Championship fight. I’m very happy for Nina, who more than deserves it after such a long time and intensive preparation.” Nina Meinke: “It’s the best day of my life. A dream has finally come true. Thanks to P2M, my family and to all my supporters.”
Shock moment in Hamburg
The shocking moment of the evening was the KO defeat of the German heavyweight champion, Peter Kadiru. A moment of inattentiveness in the opening round meant the end of the fight for the 25-year-old from Hamburg against Argentinian Marcos Antonio Aumada.
Peter Kadiru: “I’m still stunned and deeply disappointed. I wasn’t paying attention for a second and was severely punished for it. I have to work hard on myself now and learn from the mistakes.”
Kadiru’s manager Bernd Bönte: “Peter can come back stronger from this low if he draws the right lessons from his defeat.” Promoter Axel Plass adds: “This can be an important new start for Peter. We will calmly rebuild him and give him all the chances he needs.”
Simon Zachenhuber (24/Erding) was able to present himself to his fans in Hamburg for the first time. He boxed against Ali Hassan Zadeh, who had stepped in shortly beforehand, and won in round 1. The opponent who was actually planned to be stronger had canceled a week earlier due to injury. Simon Zachenhuber: “I’m looking forward to everything that’s to come and I’m grateful for the chance to start my boxing future with P2M.”
Jurk shows his great potential
The big German heavyweight talent Viktor Jurk (22/Flensburg) provided the absolute cracker of the evening, who sent his opponent Tayfun Kurt to the ground after just 15 seconds with a brutal left hook. Jurk’s 3rd KO win in 3rd pro fight.
Manager Bernd Bönte: “Viktor has great potential and with his power, his height of 2.05 m and as a southpaw is very difficult for any opponent to box.”
Langberg continues to expand KO balance
The Rostock heavyweight Felix Langberg (30) recorded his eleventh victory in the eleventh fight – 10 of them prematurely – against Anil Can Yildiz. He hit very hard several times and won by KO in the first round.
Felix Langberg: “It was exciting to box against an experienced opponent with a flawless record for the first time. Thanks to my many fans who came to support me. I’m looking forward to the further tasks.” Coach Christian Morales: “Felix has fully implemented the guidelines and our strategy. Its development is promising.”
