Former two-time light heavyweight world champion Juergen Braehmer had no problems making the super middleweight limit, weighing in with 1.2 pounds to spare. Braehmer (48-3, 35 KOs) scaled in at 166.8 pounds on Thursday for his World Boxing Super Series quarterfinal against unbeaten American Rob Brant (22-0, 15 KOs), who weighed 166. The bout takes place Friday in the 39-year-old Braehmer’s hometown of Schwerin, Germany. The winner will meet Callum Smith in the WBSS semi-final early next year.
