Braehmer and Culcay: Opponents named for Hamburg


Juergen Braehmer (39-2, 30 KOs) and Jack Culcay (14-0, 10 KOs) are looking
forward to fighting at the Sporthalle Hamburg, Germany. The two Team
Sauerland boxers will be putting their respective titles on the line on
April 27. During today´s press conference, the opponents were announced.
Braehmer will take on Tony Averlant (18-7-2, 4 KOs) for the European Light
Heavyweight Championship while Culcay wants to defend his
WBA-Intercontinental Light Middleweight Championship against Guido Nicolas
Pitto (17-1, 7 KOs) from Argentina.

“I won’t be underestimating Tony Averlant. He proved his worth during the
fight with Eduard Gutknecht when he nearly snatched the title away from him
last year. I watched the bout, so I know what to expect,” said the
34-year-old. Braehmer is hoping to improve in comparison to his last outing.
“I know I can do better. The fight in Berlin was the first one after a long
period outside of the ring and consequently the first time for a while that
I have gone through proper preparation. Now I will keep this professional
attitude up. The fans will be able to tell the difference come April 27.”

The next step towards the top of the game is on the agenda of Jack Culcay.
According to Culcay himself, he is taking on his biggest challenge to date,
when he enters the squared circle against Guido Nicolas Pitto. “Pitto won’t
be travelling over to Hamburg to lose.” And the prodigy of Coach Ismael
Salas has already begun to analyse the style of his next foe. “He fights
quite dirty and the elbow always follows through. I will have to be
extremely focused. His fitness level is also very impressive. Pitto tries to
overrun his opponents. However, I won’t be giving him that chance.”

Both fighters stated their joy about fighting in Hamburg. “I didn’t just
give my debut here but I have also fought for the WBO Title in this arena.
Hence I’m happy to return,” stated Braehmer. Jack Culcay is also keen to
fight in the city of northern Germany. “When I fought my first professional
fight on December 19, 2009 it was as part of the undercard to Juergen´s
world championship bout. Now we are both fighting in main events on the same
bill. I cannot wait.”
