Braehmer Open To Stevenson, Kovalev Unifications

By Luke Furman

According to promoter Kalle Sauerland of Sauerland Event, WBA 'regular' light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer (46-2, 34KOs) is open stepping things up in his career with a unification fight against either WBC champion Adonis Stevenson or IBF/WBO/WBA super champion Sergey Kovalev.

Braehmer will defend his belt on Saturday night against Konni Konrad at the Energie Verbund-Arena in Dresden, Sachsen.

Stevenson will defend his belt on September 11th against Tommy Karpency, while Kovalev is due back in November with a voluntary defense against an opponent to be determined in Russia.

"In November, a fight [with Kovalev] will not happen. However, we certainly would like to organize this fight. At the moment, we are also discussing the possibility of a fight with WBC world champion Adonis Stevenson of Canada, as the unification of the titles is a priority for us," Sauerland said. "As for Kovalev, he is a great puncher. However, Braehmer is not a weak puncher. Besides that, Juergen is the more technical boxer. It would be a great fight."

Kovalev fights internationally known boxers all over the world. Braehmer fights Germans in Germany.

don't listen to this bum. he pulled out of unification fights with cleverly and shumenov for no good reason. he just wants press but the dude has only fought 1 top 10 fighter his entire career...and he lost!

Braehmer has no chance with Kovalev and very low chances with Stevenson. Now he can only sit in Germany and defend his regular belt with guys like Konrad.

[QUOTE=KrusherStan;16010635]Sukhotsky gave Brähmer a war, so you could imagine what would happen if this guy faces Kovalev or Stevenson. Even Beterbiev,[/QUOTE] Sukhotsky stopped Mohammedi in 2. Still took Kovalev 3.
