Braehmer Aims To 'Legally' Force WBSS Fight With Callum Smith

Things have gotten a little more interesting because Juergen Braehmer is planning a legal challenge in the hope of facing Callum Smith in the super middleweight final of the World Boxing Super Sseries (WBSS) final.

"I'm assuming I'm going to box and I've already got my lawyer on the case," Braehmer told German newspaper the Maerkische Oder Zeitung.

"I will prepare intensively for a fight against Smith."

A virus forced Braehmer, 39 years old, out of his WBSS semi-final last month against Liverpool's undefeated Smith, who beat late stand-in Nieky Holzken on points in Nuremberg.

The super-middleweight final is planned for June when Smith, 27, will face domestic rival George Groves, who holds the WBA world title, but the latter is recovering from shoulder surgery.

Reports in the UK media suggest the fight will be rescheduled for July 7 or 14 - which WBSS officials have disputed, but Braehmer hopes a legal challenge could see him face Smith.

The German veteran is a two-time former light-heavyweight world champion.

The WBSS winner will receive the Muhammad Ali Trophy, and the WBSS carries a 50 million dollars prize fund split over super-middleweight and cruiserweight categories.

Better Brähmer than Eubank. Brähmer deserves a fight against either Smith or Groves.

Winner of Smith vs Braehmer should fight Grooves with Ali Cup on its stake.

Groves deserves his final. Push the final back so Groves can heal and have the semi-final. Plenty of time.
