Photos: Braehmer, Maccarinelli Face To Face in Rostock

ROSTOCK, GERMANY - WBA "regular" light heavyweight world champion Juergen Braehmer (42-2, 31 KOs) of Germany went face to face with challenger Enzo Maccarinelli (38-6, 30 KOs) of Wales and  at the press conference ahead of their World Championship title fight at Stadthalle Rostock on April 5th. Braehmer was present with his coach Karsten Roewer, will Maccarinelli was side by side with his manager Francis Warren. Maccarinelli was a former WBO cruiserweight champion and a few years ago dropped down to 175-pounds.

Juergen Braehmer: “Size doesn’t matter [regarding the difference in height] as the title will stay in Germany!” “Maccarinelli is a quality operator and a former world champion – a tough task to handle inside the ring. Still, I believe that I know what it takes to beat him.

Enzo Maccarinelli: “I am from Wales but have Italian roots. In terms of football you can compare this to Germany vs. Italy – and we all know that Italy was always successful against Germany when it came to the point. Come April 5, I will only be the second prizefighter after Bob Fitzsimmons to have won a world title, come down to light heavyweight and win a 2nd world championship.”

 

Francis Warren: “Enzo will have his Maccarinelli-Army with him coming over to Germany and support him. You will see a pro Maccarinelli crowd in Rostock to cheer on the new champion!”

Kalle Sauerland: “I might fear a British invasion to Rostock on April 5. At the end of the day it will be still Juergen Braehmer to be the one standing tall and still the WBA Light Heavyweight Champion. It will not only be a very entertaining bout but also to be fought on a world class level.”

Braehmer has some ability alright but isn't the sort of guy who would choose to be a boxer if he was any good at something else. Nice guy Enzo might have a sh**t chin but he packs a big heart…
