Turkish super middleweight contender Avni "Mr Robot" Yildirim (17-1) is in action on March 3rd at Sartory Halls in Cologne, Germany, taking on wily  US veteran Derek Edwards (27-7-1) for the WBC International Championship Belt.  
It`s  Avni`s  second fight since  suffering his sole career loss in the World Boxing Super Series quarterfinal against Chris Eubank jr.  
"I think Edwards is a good test for Avni", says promoter Ahmet Oner, explaining his reasoning by adding:  "Edwards stopped Badou Jack a couple of years ago so Avni should certainly not underestimate him."
Avni is determined to capitalize on this  fight as a chance to prove that the loss against Eubank jr. didn't break him but only made him all the stronger. He himself said:  "I know what I did wrong against Eubank and I will definitely not make the same mistakes again. I must  stay focused and fight as good as I can. I am still young and have a lot to learn. Every fight and every experience helps me on my way to the top."

In the co-feature, unbeaten power puncher Marek Jedrzejewski (13-0) faces Robert Tlatlik (20-1) for the vacant WBC Silver International lightweight championship. Both contenders have Polish roots but live in and fight out of Germany.

The third title fight of the night features local hero Yusuf Kanguel (14-2-1) in a ten-round super middleweight bout for the WBC Mediterranean Championship against Sladan Janjanin (23-1) from Bosnia and Herzegovina.

"I am happy to promote in Cologne and I expect a great night of boxing", states Oner, outlining:  "We will have a dozen fights with many promising prospects such as heavyweight contender Hamdi Al Zein, former Olympian Serge Michel and Emre Cukur."

Doors open at 5pm, the main event is scheduled for 10pm. Sky will broadcast the event live in Germany starting at 7pm. Other international broadcasters include TV 8,5 in Turkey.
