Firat Arslan supports Luan Krasniqi:

Former world title challenger Luan "The Lion" Krasniqi is wrapping up preparations in his hometown of Rottweil for his November 15th "Universum Champions Night" showdown with WBO #1 rated Alexander Dimitrenko at the Burg-Wächter Castello in Dusseldorf. Krasniqi is training alongside friend and former cruiserweight world champion Firat Arslan.

Former world champ Firat Arslan: "I was and am totally there for Luan. My whole energy is with him now. If Luan implements what he has shown here in training and sparring in recent weeks, then I don't have any worries. But at heavyweight we know anything can happen."

Firat Arslan, who lost his world title against Guillermo Jones on September 27, has recovered from a oparation ten days after the fight to repair a broken nose. "I'm back in full training. I didn't even think about quitting. I hope that I'll be boxing again in the spring. My motto is: Full force in the future. No matter who it is, I'm ready to box anyone....some people think that I had psychological scars after the defeat, but that's not true. Sure, I was disappointed, but I've analyzed the fight and understand why I lost. He had a very good tactic and in the back of my mind I thought that Jones would get tired. His good fitness surprised me."

Meanwhile Krasniqi is currently bursting with self-confidence. "This has been my best sparring so far. It's surprised even me." He has a total of 80 rounds of sparring behind him. Luan Krasniqi: "This fight is a terrific opportunity for me. I'm very grateful to Universum."

This interesting heavyweight battle will headline the Universum Champions Night on November 15 at the Burg-Wächter Castello. TV coverage live on ZDF from 11:00pm.
