BILD writes that a German mega fight between ex-world champs Felix Sturm and Juergen Braehmer is in the works and could, if the parties reach an agreement, take place in April with the “new” Universum as promoter.
The 41-year old Sturm returned to action this past weekend after over four years out and beat Timo Rost and was in very good shape and looked reasonably good all considered.
Braehmer, 42, has been inactive throughout 2020, but has never retired and is busy as a trainer as well.
During the best days of their respective careers Sturm (41-5-3) and Braehmer (52-3) were stablemates in the “old” Universum with Sturm fighting at middleweight and Braehmer at super middle and light heavy. It should be noted that Braehmer fought at super middle in his last fight just like Sturm.
Croatian heavyweight Petar Milas (15-0) is out of the fight against Frenchman Tony Yoka (9-0) reports the EBU.
Yoka vs Milas was set for February 28 in Nantes with the vacant EU title at stake. Ringstar France won purse bids with a stunning offer for 271,000 Euro to be split 50/50 so it’s a fine payday Milas will miss out on.
MTV 3 in Finland reported the other day that the rematch between Robert Helenius and Adam Kownacki is just about set and will go ahead already in January. This fight has been on the table for months now and according to MTV 3 only a few details remain to be worked out.
Helenius (30-3) handed Kownacki (20-1) his first loss in March in what was regarded as a stunning upset but a puncher is always in the fight with a chance – and the Nordic Nightmare can punch. After the win the WBA awarded Robert with its Gold title.
Helenius’ manager Markus Sundman has declined to make any comment.
