Biography

Jürgen Brähmer (born 5 October 1978) is a German professional boxer. He is a two-time former light-heavyweight world champion, having held the WBO title from 2009 to 2011, and the WBA (Regular) title from 2013 to 2016. Additionally, he has held the European light-heavyweight title twice, in 2009 and 2013.

Amateur career

As an amateur, Brähmer accumulated 95 wins in 100 fights including victories against Ricky Hatton in 1996, Felix Sturm in 1997 and Carl Froch in the final at the German championship in 1998.

Professional career

Early career

Brähmer went undefeated in his first 27 professional fights, losing for the first time to fellow German Mario Veit by majority decision on May 2006. Brähmer avenged the loss a year later, beating Veit with a fourth round knockout. Brähmer's first title challenge came against WBA light heavyweight champion Hugo Garay. Brähmer started the fight well but as the rounds went on, Garay was more consistent and he secured a unanimous decision in the end. The bout was broadcast by ZDF.

WBO light heavyweight champion

Brähmer won the EBU title on his next fight, beating Rachid Kanfouah with a round 5 technical knockout. Brähmer won the WBO interim light heavyweight title by knocking out Aleksy Kuziemski on 22 August 2009. On 13 November 2009, Brähmer became the WBO world light heavyweight world champion after the title was vacated by Zsolt Erdei, who moved up to cruiserweight. Brähmer successfully defended the title on 19 December 2009, winning a unanimous decision over Dmitry Sukhotsky and then again in 2010 against Mariano Plotinsky.

On January 2010, Brähmer was sentenced to 16 months in prison due to two separate instances of assault. During this time, the WBO issued an interim title, which was won by Nathan Cleverly. Brähmer was due to face Cleverly on 21 May 2011, but Brähmer withdrew from the bout the week of the fight citing an eye injury. Brähmer had previously called off a unification bout against Beibut Shumenov on less than a weeks' notice, citing "acute gastrointestinal illness". Due to his withdrawal, the WBO stripped Brähmer of his title and awarded it to Cleverly.

WBA (Regular) light heavyweight champion

Brähmer returned to the ring on January 2012, beating Jose Maria Guerrero by round 4 TKO. Brähmer went on to reclaim the European title against Eduard Gutknecht on February 2013.

After Beibut Shumenov was elevated to Super champion status by the WBA, Brahmer was given the chance to fight for the vacant WBA (Regular) title. In December 2013, he defeated Marcus Oliveira in Germany to claim the world title. He went on to successfully defend it against Enzo Maccarinelli, Roberto Bolonti, Pawel Glazewski, Robin Krasniqi, Konni Konrad, and Eduard Gutknecht on a rematch, winning four of those fights by stoppage. Brähmer lost the WBA title on October 1, 2016 to Nathan Cleverly. This was his seventh defence of the title. Brähmer retired on his stool after round 6, claiming a shoulder injury. A rematch was talked about following the fight.

World Boxing Super Series

On July 2017, Brähmer joined the super middleweight World Boxing Super Series. Brähmer hadn't fought at super middleweight in roughly a decade. He fought Rob Brant in the first round of the tournament, beating him by unanimous decision. He had to withdraw from the next fight and therefore the series due to an influenzal infection.
