The fighters in the main attractions and their respective teams are full of optimism ahead of their respective fights at the Sporthalle Hamburg, Germany this Saturday.
Jürgen Brähmer (39-2, 30 KOs), European Light Heavyweight Champion: “I am physically and mentally at the height of my ability. I am not thinking about Nathan Cleverly and the WBO World Championship. My focus is completely on my current challenge and that is Tony Averlant!”
Tony Averlant (18-7-2, 4 KOs): “I feel as if I am at the top of my game. I am serious about when I say that I will be the new European Light Heavyweight Champion come Saturday night!”
“Golden” Jack Culcay (14-0, 10 KOs), WBA Intercontinental Light Middleweight Champion: “I love being challenged and Pitto should be a good test for me. I feel well prepared for this bout and I will defend my belt and take another step towards world-level.”
Guido Nicolas Pitto (17-1, 7 KOs): “Jack Culcay is a real good boxer, but I am as big as a threat for him as he is for me. I am even more excited because an international title is at stake. This will be a real tough battle between the two of us and I will take this chance and beat him!”
There will even be a third championship bout to happen that night when light heavyweight Dustin Dirks (27-0, 20 KOs) tries to defend his WBA Intercontinental Crown against Oleksandr Cherviak (10-2-1, 3 KOs). Said promoter Kalle Sauerland: “Overall, we will have eight fights on our show this Saturday. Besides the three title fights, I am most excited about Firat Arslan’s outing for our promotion inside the ring. If he beats Varol Vekiloglu, he will very well get another world title shot later this year.”
