Photos: Braehmer, Oliveira Go Face To Face in Berlin

Here are statements from today's press conference at the Kempinski Hotel Bristol in Berlin ahead of Saturday's showdown at Jahnsportforum Neubrandenburg, Germany for the vacant WBA Light Heavyweight World Championship between leading contenders Juergen Braehmer (41-2, 31 KOs) and Marcus Oliveira (25-0-1, 20 KOs).

Juergen Braehmer: "I'm well prepared, in perfect shape and ready to go for Saturday's world championship fight. It won't be Don King fighting me with his words on Saturday but Marcus Oliveira, who will feel the power of my fists. I never make a prediction ahead of a fight but I can tell you that it's going to be massive at the Jahnsportforum!"

Marcus Oliveira: "Like Braehmer said, this will be a fight to remember this Saturday. I believe in my strengths to guide me to victory here in Germany. I know I have the tools to beat him and become a world champion."

Kalle Sauerland: "The first words coming to my mind when talking Juergen Braehmer is 'What a great comeback!'. Now he has the chance to really make those words count and crown himself a world champion in Neubrandenburg. It's going to be tough but believe me when I say that Juergen Braehmer will become the WBA Light Heavyweight World Champion this Saturday! "

Don King: "Christmas comes early this year in Germany. All of you watching the fight between Oliveira and Braehmer will be presented with a great fight. Juergen Braehmer is a tremendous fighter but when Marcus Oliveira steps inside the ring of the so-called Four-Gate-City, all portals will be closed and he has nowhere to go. It's going to be packed, it's going to be weird - you have never seen before such a spectacle in here!"

The winner of this fight will have to fight Brähmer down the line. Im not sure if Brähmer beats Oliveira though because Oliveira is quite a big hitter. And Brähmer never did well against big hitters.

When Braehmer wins his setup fight this weekend he will replace Shumenov as the biggest fraud in boxing with a belt

[QUOTE=Pigeons;14016050]I am glad the WBA elevated Beibut Shumenov to super champion, he deserved it. Plus it opens up a second belt at 175, the vacant regular title, the more titles and champions the better.[/QUOTE] Sarcasm, right?

I am glad the WBA elevated Beibut Shumenov to super champion, he deserved it. Plus it opens up a second belt at 175, the vacant regular title, the more titles and champions the better.
