Special Thanks to Angelo Hyder for negotiating the July 26th Title WBA Middleweight title fight in Germany, Without Angelo this fight would not have happened. The fight will not be Telecast in Australia and Hamdan is not sure when the fight will be replayed in Australia.

Nader intends to defeat Abarahram and then challenge the WBA world champion Maselino Masoe for his Crown. Hamdan was scheduled to fight for the IBF Pan Pacific super middleweight title against Brett Culey on July 16 at the Penrith Panthers, but has decided to take the fight he feels will be more beneficial to his international career. Hamdan also informed that after he wins the International WBA Crown, Jeff Fenech has agreed to help Hamdan out in getting a fight with Masoe through the Famous Don King. Will be speaking to the LionHeart shortly after the in Germany fight via Cell phone, Come July 26th Australia may soon have a New International WBA Middleweight boxing Champion!
