Boxing News


Two-time world champion Jürgen Brähmer has pulled out of Saturday’s World Boxing Super Series semi-final against Callum Smith in Nuremberg, Germany.

Brähmer has had a severe cold since last week, unable to shift the illness he will be unable to compete on Saturday, leaving him eliminated from the competition.

The fight can’t be postponed due to the tight schedule and WBSS rules.

Smith will now face either Nieky Holzken (13-0, 10 KOs) or Dmitrii Chudinov (20-2-2, 13 KOs) who are designated WBSS substitute fighters scheduled on the undercard.


Nieky Holzken is the man selected to replace Braehmer on Saturday night.

I've been in the boxing industry for over 16 years but been a fan for almost double that figure. I'm the proud owner of TopClassBoxing which continues to go from strength to strength as we strive to give fight fans a voice to be heard amongst the community. I've also had several articles published by reputable magazines and you can usually catch me around ringside.
