Retro WBSS: How to Tame a Dark Horse

23rd, April 2020

Germany’s Juergen Braehmer vs USA’s Rob Brant was the fourth Super-Middleweight Quarter-Final of Season 1 of the WBSS and it will be replayed live tonight at 7pm (UK) on World Boxing Super Series Facebook and YouTube.

At the public workout for the fight on October 27, 2017 both boxers appeared in a confident mood.

“I have never underestimated an opponent and I will not underestimate Brant,” said 39-year-old Braehmer, a veteran of the sport and a former champ at 175-pounds.

“Brant has won the Golden Gloves tournament as an amateur and the three other seeded fighters in the World Boxing Super Series, who could choose their opponents, obviously didn’t want him. That speaks for itself and I am not taking anything for granted.

“I feel good, in great shape and I am ready to show that I still have what it takes to be the best. I predict a tough night for Brant.”

Said 27-year-old Brant, labeled by many as a dark horse to win the 168lbs tournament: “I don’t like to look beyond any opponent, but I strongly believe that I can win the super middleweight division of the World Boxing Super Series and take home the Muhammad Ali Trophy.”
