Juergen Braehmer Dominates, Stops Konrad To Retain

By Per Ake Persson

Dresden, Germany - Juergen Braehmer (47-3, 35KOs) retained his WBA 'regular' light heavyweight championship with a dominating performance, dropping and stopping and overmatched Konni Konrad (22-2-1) in seven rounds.

Braehmer controlled the action, outboxing Konrad in the early going and kept the pace of the contest at a comfortable level. He scored a good knockout in the sixth round, but didn't jump on Konrad, who didn't appear to be in serious trouble. After another round of one-sided domination, Konrad's corner called it a day and stopped the fight, with the TKO stoppage called prior to the start of the eight.

Cruiserweight Noel Gevor (19-0) won a unanimous decision after ten rounds of boxing over Argentinian Daniel Sanabria (20-5) to win the vacant WBO International title.

Polish cruiserweight contender Mateusz Masternak (36-3) won the vacant WBA Intercontinental title with  a second round stoppage of Brazilian Carlos Nascimento (12-2). It was set for 12.

Agron Dzila (23-1) retained the GBU cruiserweight title when Grigol Abuladze (21-10) was forced to retire in the first round of a scheduled 12-rounder. Abuladze was a poor opponent to begin with, with three inside the distance losses in has last five fights - with both wins in-between at home in the Republic of Georgia.

17-year old super middleweight prospect Leon Bauer (3-0) opened up Sauerland Event´s show at the EnergiVerbund Arena with a second round stoppage of Darko Knezevic (7-9). It was scheduled for four rounds. Knezevic was floored in the first and didn´t come out for the second.

Stefan Haertel, also at super middleweight, won a unanimous decision over six rounds against Ivan Jukic (21-7). Haertel is 7-0 now but with zero stoppage wins. And while he is a good, well schooled talent - the lack of power will make it difficult for him when he gets further on in his career.

That was a farce. A guy who does not know how to jab should not be given title shots.

Wow, Braehmer dominated a guy ranked 135th at light heavyweight by boxrec. What will Sauerland propose next: having him fight somebody tied to a chair? Fake belt holder, fraud "title" fights

Who else can Kovalev fight that we will care about? If he has to go to a purse bid against a Haymon fighter he will probably lose, and drop the belt. Braehmer is a fight that is legit, Ward is…

Will he be fighting Kovalev next? I really doubt so.
