Netzer, Groenteman, and Brooks Update

It appears that Danny "Silent" Netzer's fight on September 8 against Brandon Cook is off. Cook will face 27 fight veteran Ferenc Zold instead. Netzer, a middleweight, is 3-1 with one knockout. Danny last fought on May 24, a unanimous decision win over Jose Luis Doviasa.

Barry Groenteman has a new opponent for his October 15 date at the Theater Carré in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Groenteman (7-5-1, two KOs) has been gunning for a rematch against Andrea Carbonello, a man he lost to in a disputed split decision back in March. But Carbonello has backed out of the proposed rematch.

The new opponent is Tarik Madni (16-4, zero KOs). Madni has a fight scheduled for September 15 against a a 1-14-1 fighter. Despite Madni's solid record, the 36-year old Belgian junior welterweight only has two wins against winning opponents. The bout with Barry is currently scheduled for ten rounds; Groenteman has never fought more than six.

Mike "Lefty" Brooks (8-0, 2 KOs) is planning on fighting on November 1 at the same location as his previous two bouts, the Plattduetsche Restaurant in New York. The lightweight body-punching extraordinaire has won two bouts since May after undergoing a seven month layoff. No opponent has been announced, yet. This contest is marked down for six rounds. Brooks went eight in his last fight.
