Braehmer and Averlant calm ahead of fight


The tension keeps building. The European Light Heavyweight Title clash
between Juergen Braehmer (39-2, 30 KOs) and Tony Averlant (18-7-2, 4 KOs) is
just days away. Before the pair steps into the ring at the Sporthalle
Hamburg, Germany this Saturday, they met during today’s public workout.
However, both contestants were keen on not giving away too much and kept the
fans guessing in what kind of shape they are in.

Averlant and his coach Cyril Thomas started of their training session with
some shadowboxing followed by rope skipping. The 29-year-old challenger only
arrived in Hamburg this morning and wasn’t willing to put too much on
display as Karsten Roewer, who trains with Braehmer, was just inches away
following the spectacle inside the ring. Although the Frenchman wasn’t that
active during the public workout, he promised that it will be a whole
different story come Saturday night. “The sheer amount of my punches will
make the difference. I will be victorious,” said Averlant.”

Nevertheless, Juergen Braehmer didn’t seem to be impressed. After an intense
preparation, the 34-year-old European champion will enter the ring fully
prepared. “There is always a lot going on during training camp. We have been
hitting the town every night, therefore there wasn’t a lot of time for
training,” joked the German. Of course the reality was very different. After
hitting the pads coach Roewer said: “The remoteness of the camp was really
good for Juergen. He is in great shape and that will show on Saturday.”

Hometown favorite “Golden” Jack Culcay (14-0, 10 KOs) was keen to impress
the waiting fans. The 27-year-old will defend his WBA Intercontinental Light
Middleweight Championship against Guido Nicolas Pitto (17-1 7 KOs), and many
experts believe, that he will turn out to be the toughest challenge to date
for the young German. However, Fritz Sdunek, who currently works with
Culcay, believes that his prodigy will win in convincing style. “Jack has
been doing exactly what I have told him to during sparring. If he manages to
take that with him into the fight, he will beat Pitto.”
