Juergen Braehmer (40-2, 31 KOs) is stepping back into the ring in his home city. The European Light Heavyweight Champion will make his second title defense at the Sport- und Kongresshalle Schwerin, Germany on August 24. His opponent on the night will be Stefano Abatangelo (17-2-1, 6 KOs) from Italy.

The 31-year-old challenger is travelling to Germany full of confidence. On May 31, the man from Montanaro, close to the city of Turin, dethroned the Italian Champion Emanuele Barletta via a seventh round TKO victory.
“Abatangelo is on a good winning streak. He did not lose once in his last twelve outings. He will do everything he can to take the EBU Title back home to Italy,” said Team Sauerland Director of Sports Hagen Doering.
Juergen Braehmer will definitely have to be careful, as he is not just putting his European Title on the line. The German is also the mandatory challenger to the current WBO Champion Nathan Cleverly, who he will be facing towards the end...
