LONDON, FEBRUARY 23 – The major co-promotion agreement forged between Probellum and
Wasserman Boxing now sees the partnership head for the German capital next month.
Abass Baraou takes on Brian Chaves over 12 rounds at the Tempodrom in Berlin on Saturday, March
19 in the second event staged by the two promotional powerhouses.

he takes on Argentina’s Chaves over 12 rounds in the headline bout, in the first show at the
Tempodrom in 18 years.
