Tayfun “Turkish Turbine” Ozcan officially has an opponent for his 26 October ring return in Wuppertal, Germany.
Ozcan, the reigning Enfusion 72.5 kg World Champion and recognized as one of the best in the world pound for pound, will meet Edye Ruiz of Spain in a 70 kg non-title bout. Enfusion co-promoter DK Fight Promotion made the announcement today.
The bout will be the Turk’s third outing in 2019. He successfully defended his title with a points win over 75 kg champion Endy Semeleer in February, then defeated Mo Hendouf at the Arena Fight event in France in June.
Ruiz is a veteran of over 70 fights. In his last Enfusion appearance, he lost a decision to Diogo Calado at Enfusion 72 last October.
The bout will be a tune up for Ozcan before he challenges Enfusion 70 kg champion Jonay Risco in Abu Dhabi on 6 December.
“Before i take on Jonay Risco, i have another challenger Edye Ruiz on the biggest organisation in Germany @dk_fightpromotion! So my next fight will be on 26 oktober,” Ozcan wrote on social media.
