Agit Kabayel: “Here in Magdeburg I became European champion and here I will continue to move to the top…my self-confidence is reinforced by sparring invitations with world champions like Joshua – as a European champion, I’m not really so far from their level. I have now begun sparring, know what we have to work on, and look forward to the fight on March 2.”

Tom Schwarz: “This is my home game. I have to prove myself in front of my fans. 2018 was my best year – 2019 we are still stepping up our game…the result I want against Krstacic is a clear victory.”
