Boxer Sebastion Zbik Brings Criminal Charges Against Universum Boxpromotion
German boxer Sebastian Zbik is "tired of waiting for his money and brought charges against the representatives of Universum Boxpromotion GmbH," according to Björn Jensen of the HAMBURGER ABENDBLATT. In addition, Zbik's lawyers "also requested the opening of insolvency proceedings for the once successful boxing gym." The reason for the dispute is an open liability of €190,000 ($245,000). It is the 30-year-old's "share from his world championship bout against Felix Sturm on April 13." The criminal offense was brought against Universum due to suspicion of breach of trust, embezzlement and hiding company assets. The request of insolvency proceedings "is simply a logical consequence." A provisional liquidator "is currently auditing the economic situation" of the boxing promoter (HAMBURGER ABENDBLATT, 10/26).
