There is still no date or site for Juergen Braehmer vs. Rob Brant, the fourth of the quarterfinals in the World Boxing Super Series tournament at 168 pounds, but according to a German press release from Team Sauerland - a likely date is at the end of October.
Meanwhile, Braehmer continues working as a trainer and one of his pupils, super middleweight Denis Radovan, 5-0, will fight on the undercard to Oleksandr Usyk vs Marco Huck on September 9 in Berlin.
Also on the undercard, and ready to step in as substitutes should one of the main event fighters pullout are cruiserweights Noel Gevor, 22-1, and Artur Mann, 11-0.
Polish light heavyweight prospect Pawel Stepien, 7-0, passed his first test in style as he knocked out Dayron Lester, 9-1, with a left hook to the body in the fourth on a show in Miedzyzdroje, Poland over the weekend.
Lester fights out of Tammerfors, Finland, but is from Cuba and with lots of experience from the amateurs. Stepien looks like the real thing. In the main event light heavies Dariusz Sek and Marek Matyja drew over ten in a fight for the national title.
Danish boxers Pierre Madsen and Detlev Rossing both scored easy wins last night in Little Rock, Arkansas, Madsen, 9-0, stopped late sub Dakota Talbott, 2-17, in the second in a heavyweight fight while Rossing, a cruiserweight, moved to 6-0 by stopping Terry Porter, 16-26-3, also in the second. Both will stay in the US until the end of the month trained by Sherman Williams.
