Brähmer opponent named: Pawel Glazewski

WBA light heavyweight champion Jurgen Brähmer has an opponent for his December 6th date at the EWE Arena in Oldenburg, Germany. Brähmer (44-2, 32 KOs) will defend against Pawel Glazewski (23-2, 5 KOs) of Bialystok, Poland. Glazewski is not currently rated by the WBA. His main claim to fame is a split decision loss to Roy Jones Jr. in June 2012.

“Recently, I have faced opposition who have either been well-conditioned or big punchers,” said Braehmer. “Glazewski possesses both these attributes. Although he does a lot well, I do it all better. I’m superior to him in every aspect of the fight game. I will prove this come December 6!”

The announcement will be a blow to Enzo Maccarinelli, who was hoping to land a rematch with the German champion.
