The Argentine will face Jussi Koivula, an experienced 36-year-old Finn on December 5.

After knocking out José Miguel Fandiño on August 21, in what was his return to boxing after six years of inactivity, Sergio Maravilla Martínez already has a confirmed date and rival for his new challenge: he will be the next December 5th before the experienced Finn Jussi Koivula, 36 years old.

The only thing that remains to be defined is the scenario where the combat will take place, agreed to at 10 rounds in the medium category. It is only known that it will be in a city in Spain, a place that the 45-year-old former Argentine world champion chose to relaunch his sports career.

For his part, the Finn has a record of 24 wins, seven losses and a draw, with a total of 9 KO. He lost his last two fights and has not been in an official fight since June 2019, when he was knocked out by Conor Benn, in England, for the WBA intermediate welterweight belt.

Of the seven times he was defeated, six involved a belt at stake. On February 7, 2015, he tried to win the vacant IBF Intercontinental Junior Middleweight Title, but lost a unanimous decision to Marcello Matano in Italy. Later, on April 22, 2016, he fell in nine rounds to Italy’s Leonard Bundu, for the vacant European welterweight title.

March 31, 2017, he was defeated by Frenchman Mohamed Mimoune in 12 rounds, for the European Union welterweight title. In November of that same year, he was knocked out in the tenth round by Colombian Samuel Vargas for the WBA welterweight title. Finally, on April 26, 2019, he could not face Jordy Weiss, who after 12 rounds won the European Union welterweight title.

Accompanied by his trainer Tinín Rodríguez, Maravilla Martínez had a glorious return to boxing on August 21, when he defeated Fandiño by knockout in the seventh round, in the Spanish city of Torrelavega.

“This is the beginning of something very nice. I will not stop until I am world champion again, “said the Argentine after his victory, adding:” Now I returned to the ring. I need more fighting to finish feeling comfortable. “
