By Per Ake Persson

Comebacking German former WBA; WBO and EBU champ Juergen Braehmer (50-3) will now face Edi Kadrija (11-1) on Saturday in Schwerin. Kadrija steps for the injured Nils Schmidt.

The 40-year old Braehmer last fought in December of last year and that has been his only fight since winning over Rob Brant in October of 2017. Still, unless the former champ have suddenly grown "old" it appears that Kadrija is in deep waters against Braehmer.

Braehmer trains as previously reported Tyron Zeuge and is now also the new coach for female middleweight Christina Hammer, who lost to Claressa Shields in her last fight.

There is also a change of opponent for Danish cruiser Ditlev Rossing (11-0) who defends the WBC Youth title on the Jorgen Hansen Memorial show in Randers (Denmark) also on Saturday.

The 24-year old Rossing is now too old to be fighting for the WBC Youth title but is allowed what is called a graduation defence before moving on to bigger things. The original opponent was Landry Matete but he is now replaced by American Demetrius Banks (10-7-1). Banks is 38-years old but is approved by the WBC to fight for its Youth title. Well, there´s nothing like eternal youth is there?

Hadi Hamane Promotions stage their inaugural show in Koge (Denmark) June 21 and will then begin a Swedish campaign that will take them through Malmoe in August, Stockholm in September and Gothenburg in November. Topping the bill ijn Koge is the sole Danish member of the team in cruiserweight debutant Wissam Khattar. Latest fighter to join HHP is Swedish welter Mohamed Saleh, 7-0, who´s been inactive since 2017. The team consists now of nine Swedish fighters, seven of whom are debutants but all with decent credentials from the amateurs.

The rematch between David Avanesyan 24-3-1) and Kerman Lejarraga (28-1) could go ahead in Bilbao in September writes Espabox. Avanesyan beat Lejarraga in a big upset in March and won the EBU title and put a stop to the Spaniard´s plans for the US under the wings of DiBella Promotions.

Lejarraga won the WBC Latin title this past weekend with a fourth round knockout over Mexican Luis Solis and the EBU have accepted that Avanesyan makes a voluntary defence of the title.

32-year old veteran Zapir Rasulov (33-1) fights for the fifth time in the US when on June 22 enters the ring at the Firelake Aren in Shawnee, Oklahoma. Rasulov takes on Augusto Pinilla.(16-13-1). Rasulov turned pro in 2004 and has been carefully moved forward by manager Mario Pokowietz and is currently ranked # 15 by the WBA at lightweight.


Danish super welterweight Mikkel Nielsen (8-0) take on Mexican Jose Luiz Rodriguez Guerrero (9-2-2) July 4 in Aabenraa (Denmark) on a show promoted by fast growing Q Pro Boxing. At stake is the vacant GBU I/C title. Nielsen states in a press release that he expects a tough fight and he might be right. boxrec´s rating have Rodriguez Guerrero at # 62 while Nielsen is # 262.

These youth title's have been bugging me for years. Youth stops @ 18, maybe 21 in some cultures & that should be the maximum cut off. Of course it's a financial scam to make a bit more money, but the…
