Sylvester seeking fresh start!

The protagonists of Saturday night´s Sauerland Event fight card in Neubrandenburg today warmed up with a public training session in the heart of the East German city. Former European middleweight champion Sebastian Sylvester (29-3, 14 KOs) will be looking to return to winning ways when he faces Italy´s Gaetano Nespro (14-4, 2 KOs) for the IBF international middleweight title. It will be the Hurricane’s first fight since losing a points decision to WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm and also the first under newly-appointed head coach Karsten Rower. “The first months of our cooperation have been great,” Rower said. “Things are going very smoothly. Saturday is a big fight for us – a fight which we must not lose. Sebastian needs to be on alert against a tricky opponent.” The Hurricane can´t wait to get back into the ring. “I am in great shape,” he said. “I really enjoy working with Karsten Rower. I have prepared very well and I will make a winning return.”

In the co-featured main event, European super-middleweight champion Karo Murat (18-0, 11 KOs) grants experienced Italian Cristian Sanavia (40-4, 12 KOs) a rematch. Back in April 2008, Murat had deprived the former world champion of his European belt. “I defeated him once so I will defeat him again,” Murat said. “I have improved since our first meeting and I keep learning so many things from Ulli Wegner. I will be prepared.”

Also in action will be gifted middleweight Dominik Britsch (11-0, 4 KOs), who wants to put himself in the frame for a Youth Title fight with a success over Rachid Ouafi (6-3). “Dominik is one of the biggest talents I have ever trained,” Wegner said of the 21-year-old youngster. “Despite his age, he has a very professional attitude. He has a golden future ahead.”
