Juergen Braehmer wins WBA light-heavyweight title


Recommended Posts


German light-heavyweight Juergen Braehmer, 42-2 (31), once again holds a version of the world light-heavyweight title (the WBA) after unanimously outpointing American opponent Marcus Oliveira, 25-1-1 (20), in Neubrandenburg, Germany on Saturday night.* It was, for the most part, a soporific affair, which only burst into life in the last four rounds.The biggest impact that Oliveira had on the evening came before the action even started, when an obviously pre-determined plan to unsettle the home camp sent the promoter, Kalle Sauerland, almost apopleptic.* Oliveira appeared in his robe at the top of the walkway, with his native-American singing and chanting music playing loudly, but he made no attempt to start his ring walk.* Instead, his promoter Don King was in the vicinity arguing with the local officials.* After some minutes of this, Oliveira turned tail and headed back to his dressing room.* The upshot was that King had objected to his fighter being kept waiting in the ring whilst a rock band serenaded Braehmer to the ring.* He insisted that Braehmer should make his ring walk first, therefore preventing his fighter from having to wait.
