Juergen Braehmer Targets Showdown With Carl Froch

Hamburg/London – WBA world champion Jürgen Brähmer can't wait to get in the ring for the super-duel against the Brit Carl Froch. The current IBF super-middleweight world champion recently announced he is only interested in a really big fight – now Jürgen Brähmer, a famous name on the boxing scene known around the world, is challenging the Brit to a bout. The former WBO and current WBA world champion in the light-heavyweight class intends to defend his title and is even prepared to drop a weight class for the duel.

"If Froch is worried he doesn't stand a chance of taking my title in my weight class, I'll drop a division or we'll agree a catchweight," says champion Brähmer. Hailing from the northern German city of Schwerin, he's even prepared to go to England to fight the duel: "If things work out, I'd definitely box on the island. A Germany v. England duel in Great Britain – what more could you want. After all, such highlights are why I became a sportsman and they electrify boxing fans around the world."

Promoter Kalle Sauerland considers such a duel as being entirely possible: “I have spoken to Froch's promoter Eddie Hearn this week about this fight and it is something that we will be discussing in the coming weeks. Obviously there is a score to settle from the amateur days but also would represent a new challenge to Froch to test himself against the best Light Heavyweight in the Division“ says Sauerland.

If it comes off, the fight would actually represent a clash between two veterans of the ring: Between them, Jürgen Brähmer (35) and Carl Froch (37) have over 40 years' experience in the ring. And with so much ring-time experience, it promises to be an epic duel particularly as the two have only suffered two defeats in their long, record-winning boxing careers and especially as both are feared owing to their high KO rates.

That said, a duel between the two world champions wouldn't be the first time the two have come to blows as both set foot in the ring against each other during their amateur careers. Things look positive for Brähmer who, as an amateur, has already enjoyed victories over Felix Sturm and Ricky Hatton.

"Jürgen was an outstanding amateur and an even better pro. I believe he can be victorious over Froch again as an amateur," says Peter Hanraths, Jürgen Brähmer's manager. If the duel actually happens depends mainly on Froch and his team.

Brähmer is probably the biggest fraud "champion" in boxing. He's been gifted two "title belts," fighting limited opponents at home for vacant belts, and lost badly the only time he's actually fought another beltholder, Hugo Garay. No possible way he'd…

Piss off. That would be a demolition. Basically sending a mouse into a Cobra cage...
