Photos: Braehmer Badly Batters Maccarinelli's Right Eye

Stadthalle, Rostock, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany - WBA "regular" light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer stopped former WBO cruiserweight champion Enzo Maccarinelli in five rounds after a hard left hand in an earlier round would create the starting point of the damage, which eventually shut Ezno's right eye shut. As a result, Braehmer got another TKO win in the fifth round and is now 43-2, with 32 KOs, while the Welshman falls down to 38-7, 30 KOs, with all of his losses coming by way of stoppage.

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK;14399770]Maccarinelli looked like a skeleton at the weigh-in and your chin doesn't get better when you move down in weight :lol1:[/QUOTE]But the bigger men at cruiserweight generally punch harder. It's usually easier to take a light heavyweight punch…
