Enzo Maccarinelli (38-6, 30 KOs) travels to Rostock, Germany to challenge Juergen Braehmer (42-2, 31 KOs) for the WBA World Light Heavyweight Championship on April 5.

Maccarinelli, the former WBO Cruiserweight Champion, knows what it takes to become a world champion and makes no secret of his desire to take the title from Braehmer in front of the German’s home fans.

Q: What do you think of your opponent Juergen Braehmer?

EM: I really respect him. He was a top quality amateur, who beat Ricky Hatton twice I believe. He is a very tough, hard man who has been around almost as long as me.

Q: How have you been preparing for this fight?

EM: I have been training with former WBU World Middleweight Champion Gary Lockett, a top young trainer, at his gym in Cardiff. I have paid for some of the best sparring around and will have had an eight-week camp by fight night.

Q: What do you believe will give you the advantage over Braehmer on April 5?

EM: I will have the biggest heart and desire to win the battle. I want this title more than anything in my career. I really want to go out on top by winning this final world title.

Q: Braehmer is known for his technical abilities and his southpaw stance, will this influence your game plan?

EM: Gary and I have come up with a game plan to adjust to Braehmer’s style. I have sparred thousands of rounds with the best southpaw of recent years, Joe Calzaghe. I know a southpaw better than he does!

Q: How would you describe your own style?

EM: I used to be about the big left hooks and right hands, coming forward swinging, but under Gary I have learnt to use my boxing brain and it is now a controlled all-out attack.

Q: You know what it takes to become a world champion, will that experience help you when facing Braehmer?

EM: I’ve had twenty championship fights in my career, from British to World title level, of course it is all experience in the bag, but I think this fight against Braehmer will be totally different and I wont be reliant on any of my previous experience, it will come down to who wants it more, and that’s me!

Q: What made you decide to step down in weight and how have you found the transition to light heavyweight?

EM: I was making the cruiserweight limit easy for world title fights and just felt that I could go down to light heavyweight and still retain my power, which has been the case. I am faster and stronger now.

Q: British fans are known to travel to support their fighters, will you be expecting a big crowd cheering you on and will this give you an added motivation on the night?

EM: I will have fans there, but whether I have twenty thousand supporting me or two fans in the crowd, it won’t make a difference in the ring, I’m fully focused on my job on the night.

Q: What is your prediction for fight night?

EM: An Enzo Maccarinelli victory.

Joining Maccarinelli in action at the Stadthalle in Rostock will be undefeated Welsh prospects Lewis Rees (9-0, 5 KOs) and Liam Williams (8-0-1, 3 KOs). Rees, a decorated amateur and current Welsh Champion, will face Renald Garrido (11-7, 2 KOs), while 21 year-old Williams goes toe-to-toe with Yuri Pompilio (5-8-2, 1 KO).

There are still a limited number of tickets available for this show via www.eventim.de .

Enzo seems like a genuinely nice guy. Which makes me wonder why I almost get aroused watching him get brutally KTFO. I have issues.

This fight is a joke !!!! ENZO IS A BUM !!! :argue:

comment by Tobi.G, on 03-26-2014
Enzo has a chance because Brähmer is no world-beater, a paper-champ.

if enzo can keep that chin tucked in and let his hands go he could win this handily :boxing: war enzo !!!

What a story that would be though & maybe I am going with my heart a bit here but I can't help but think Enzo can do the almost unthinkable here. Warrr Enzo!
