Minnesota’s hometown hero Robert “Bravo” Brant (22-0, 15 KO’s) and Germany’s Juergen Braehmer (48-3, 35 KOs) are ready for tonight’s Ali Trophy quarter-final in Schwerin, Germany. Brant weighed in yesterday at 166 pounds while Braehmer was slightly heavier at 166.8.
“I am very confident that I will win tomorrow,” said Brant. “Whether the fight was in Dallas, New York or here in Germany I would feel very confident. A victory will help boost my name in the sport,” said the 27-year-old American.
“I can’t predict when I am going to get the victory. Whether it’s in the second round or 12th round, I will get the victory.”
Former two-time world champion, 39-year-old Juergen Braehmer, came down from light heavyweight to compete for the Muhammad Ali Trophy in the super middleweight division.
“I haven’t had any problems making weight,“ said Braehmer looking forward to fighting in front of his home crowd.
“I am very proud that the World Boxing Super Series came to Schwerin. I am fit, I am ready and I can’t wait to entertain my fans!”
