The World Boxing Super Series has announced that former WBA and WBO light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer (48-3, 35 KOs) will be coming down in weight to participate in the inaugural season of the World Boxing Super Series, joining WBA champion George Groves as well as undefeated challengers Erik Skoglund and Jamie Cox in the super-middleweight competition. The remaining four participants will be unveiled in the next days, with all eight fighters coming face-to-face at the Draft Gala next Saturday to hand-pick their quarter-final opponents.
Braehmer is excited about his participation. ”I am looking forward to the tournament,” he said. ”I am prepared. The change of the weight class is not a challenge for me. I have made more than 30 professionals fights at super-middleweight and will now return to my original weight class. I am curious who my opponents will be.”
