RING No. 4-rated light heavyweight Juergen Braehmer will pursue his 14th straight win against an opponent to be determined on Dec. 6 at the EWE Arena in Oldenburg, Germany, Sauerland Event announced on Friday.

In his last fight, Braehmer (44-2, 32 knockouts) won a unanimous decision over Roberto Bolonti, ending Bolonti’s streak of five consecutive knockout victories.

“I’ve kept in great shape since my last fight. I’m looking forward to getting back into the ring and defending my title for a third time,” said Braehmer, 36, in a release. [Note: Braehmer holds the WBA “World” title. THE RING recognizes the WBA Super World title held by Bernard Hopkins as the legitimate belt.]

“It is not just about the victory for me. I want to prove that I am the best fighter in my weight category. I will put on a great show for the fans in Oldenburg and show everyone that I am the man to beat at 175 pounds.”

Braehmer, a former WBO 175-pound titleholder, recently signed a contract extension with Team Sauerland.

“We are very happy to continue our work with Juergen,” said Kalle Sauerland. “We want to feature him in career-defining fights so that he can cement his legacy as one of Germany’s great champions.”

Braehmer will begin sparring later this month with coach Karsten Roewer.

“I do a lot of work on my cardio, so I have no problem keeping up with the young guys,” said Braehmer. “I’m in as good a shape now as I’ve ever been. On Dec. 6, I will be in top physical condition.”
