IBF middleweight champion Sebastian Sylvester and challenger Billy Lyell today participated in a public work-out in Neubrandenburg. A sell-out crowd of 4,500 fans will support local hero Sylvester on Saturday night in what will be the Hurricane’s first title defense. “I am looking forward to Saturday,” Sylvester said. “Lyell is a tough opponent, but he will not beat me. I will defend my title and put on a great show for my home fans.”

The American challenger, who replaces Pablo Navascues following a positive drug test, arrived in Germany on Tuesday morning. His coach Jack Loew said, “This is the chance Billy has been waiting for all his life. It is no problem to take the fight on short notice. He is in full practice and ready for Sylvester.”
