Juergen Braehmer (45-2, 33 KOs) will defend his WBA World Light Heavyweight title against Robin Krasniqi (43-3, 16 KOs) on March 21 in Rostock, Germany.
The 36 year-old southpaw returns, following the first-round knockout Pawel Glazewski in December, to face Krasniqi in a hotly anticipated domestic showdown. ‘’This is a fight people have been talking about for a long time.’’ said Braehmer. ‘’Now, the time has come to give the fans what they want. On March 21, I will defeat Krasniqi and retain my title.’’
In Rostock, Krasniqi will have the opportunity to achieve his ultimate ambition, when he makes his second world title attempt. ‘’My dream has always been to become world champion,’’ said the Munich-based boxer. ‘’I missed my first opportunity two years ago, but this time I will take my chance and dethrone Braehmer!’’
Said promoter Kalle Sauerland: “Braehmer vs. Krasniqi is a fight that has been on the wish list of German boxing fans for some time. We’re delighted that, on March 21, in cooperation with our new TV partner SAT.1, we can fulfil this wish.’’
