Cefn Fforest’s former WBO world light-heavyweight title holder Nathan Cleverly (29-3, 15 KOs) is aiming to reign again in the division, when he takes on German Juergen Braehmer (48-2, 35 KOs) for his WBA World light-heavyweight title fight on October 1st at the Jahnsportforum in Neubrandenburg, Germany.
Both boxers came face-to-face today at a press conference in Hamburg ahead of their showdown. The fighters appeared in a confident mood as they discussed their upcoming world title tussle, and having twice come close to sharing a ring, both champion and challenger are eager to prove who is the better man.
Juergen Braehmer: “I’m very happy this fight is finally happening. Nathan Cleverly is a great boxer. He has an offensive style and a high work-rate, which I’m sure will make for an entertaining night for the fans in Neubrandenburg. Of course, every fight is a challenge, but I believe Natcleverlyhan will provide me with one of the biggest challenges of my career. However, together with my coach Conny Mittermeier, I will leave no stone unturned, and on October 1, my hand will be raised and the belt will remain around my waist.”
Nathan Cleverly: “This fight is my destiny. Juergen has been fantastic for German boxing, but it’s time for a young lion to come and rip that title from him. He’s 37 years old and hopefully this fight will mark the end of his career.”
