Further to the WBA heavyweight title fight between Nikolai Valuev and Ruslan Chagaev, Scandinavian fight fans will get a first-hand look at the impressive boxing skills of “Relentless” Lamon Brewster (35-4, 30 KOs). The former WBO heavyweight champion, who even knocked out Wladimir Klitschko, has been added to May 30´s star-studded undercard at Hartwall Arena. “I look forward to fighting in Helsinki,” Brewster said. “I want to give the Scandinavian fans a taste of my class.”
Brewster clinched the vacant WBO heavyweight title in April 2004 when he spectacularly knocked out Wladimir Klitschko in the fifth round of their showdown in Las Vegas. He made three successful defences before losing a close fight against Sergej Liakhovich. Klitschko eventually got his revenge, defeating him in a re-match in front of 18,000 fans in Cologne in July 2007. “I was not in top shape on that night,” he said. “But I am back in top shape now. My goal is to fight for the world title again soon and that is why I have joined Team Sauerland. I look forward to proving my class in Helsinki.” Brewster made his first fight for Team Sauerland in March when he defeated Michael Sprott.
Kalle Sauerland is thrilled to have the American star on board. “He is one of the biggest names in the heavyweight scene,” he said. “He has been in the ring with many big fighters. With Valuev, Chagaev, Helenius, Braekhus and all the Finnish talent, the fight night in Helsinki will certainly be a spectacular one.”
