Juergen Braehmer versus Tommy Oosthuizen on Nov. 7
Following a predictable victory over Konni Konrad on Saturday, German veteran Juergen Braehmer (47-2, 35 KOs) will now face South Africa’s Tommy “Tommy Gun” Oosthuizen (25-0-2, 14 KOs) on Nov. 7 in Monte Carlo.
The fight will top Rodney Berman’s Golden Gloves’ ‘Night of Champions’ card in Monaco which features boxers from around the world — China, Venezuela, Kazakhstan, Russia, Japan, France, South Africa, Germany and the UK – being represented.
”I’m very happy to get the chance to come to Monaco,” said Braehmer, who is rated No. 4 by THE RING at light heavyweight. ”This is a chance for me to let the world know that I’m ready for any challenge.”
Oosthuizen, who is rated No. 10, said, “This is a big opportunity for me to display my skills. I’ve seen Braehmer and his hand speed is critical, so I’m going to have to bring my A-game. He’s similar to me with counterpunching and angles, but my style is adjustable and I can adapt.
“I’ll have a response to whatever he brings.”
Despite the challenger’s claims, Braehmer believes Oosthuizen’s work ethic will be no match for his superior skills.
He said, ”I’m pleased to hear that he is training hard, as hopefully we will be able to deliver for the fans in Monaco and those watching on television. But no matter how hard he trains, it will not be enough.”
Braehmer holds a version of the WBA 175-pound title that is not recognized by THE RING, which views Sergey Kovalev as the legit WBA light heavyweight champion.
