Big Time Boxing Returns To Germany
As Baraou Challenges Culcay
Team Sauerland’s exciting super welterweight contender Abass
Baraou (9-0, 6 KOs) will challenge former World Champion
Jack Culcay (28-4, 13 KOs) in a mouth watering 50/50 clash
on August 28th at the Harvel Studios in Berlin.
The fight, already being billed as the ‘Fight of the Year’
in Germany, will see Baraou fight under the tutelage of
esteemed trainer Adam Booth for the first time, having
linked up with the Englishman in early March.
Baraou kicked off the year with a devastating four round
demolition of Mexico’s Abraham Juarez in Hamburg on January
25th, and the 25-year-old was scheduled to take on Nick
Klappert (28-3, 15 KOs) on April 4th in Hamburg, Germany,
however this fight was cancelled due to the coronavirus
“I am really looking forward to the fight and I'm more than
ready” said Baraou. “I would also like to thank the
Sauerland team for the trust they have placed in me. Jack is
a big fighter with a lot of experience, but I'm sure I can
and will beat him. I will leave nothing to chance on the way
to becoming number one in Germany."
Former interim WBA World Super Welterweight Champion Culcay
makes a quick return to the ring having claimed a unanimous
decision victory over Howard Cospolite on June 12th, and the
34-year-old Berliner is confident he will remain Germany’s
No.1 rated super welterweight.
“It will be a great battle for the fans and a tough battle
between the best super welterweight fighters in Germany,”
said Culcay. “I am number one in the German rankings and it
will stay that way even after the fight. Thank you AGON
Sports & Events for fulfilling my wish. Let’s win this
Team Sauerland promoter Nisse Sauerland is looking forward
to seeing Germany’s #1 rated super welterweight take on #2,
with the winner of the fight being elevated to number 2 in
the IBF world rankings.
“I am very pleased that AGON and the Sauerland team were
able to work together to make such a great fight,” said
Sauerland. “It's admirable that Abass has the courage to
face a world-class boxer like Jack in just his tenth fight.
Jack was previously a Team Sauerland fighter so we know what
a great fighter he is.”
The event will take place on August 28th at the Havel
Studios in Berlin and there will be further announcements
