On Saturday night, November 5, 2016, twenty-eight year old professional boxer Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade (Providence, Rhode Island/Pro record: 23-0-0, with 16 KOs) plans to win his second world title at the MBS Arena in Potsdam, Germany against WBA World Super Welterweight Champion, Jack “Golden Jack” Culcay (Germany by way of Ecuador/ pro record: 22-1-0, with 11 KOs). Andrade-Culcay is scheduled for twelve rounds on the fight card promoted by Sauerland Events, A-Team Promotions, Banner Promotions, and Star Boxing, with television to be determined. Andrade is a former WBO world champion in the light middleweight division. He last fought on June 11, 2016, when he defeated Willie Nelson by TKO on SHOWTIME.
Jack Culcay (21-1, 10 KOs) meets Jean Carlos Prada (31-1-1, 22 KOs) for the WBA World Super Welterweight title tonight at the MBS Arena in Potsdam, Germany.
Culcay, a former amateur, European and interim World Champion, is confident he can claim World honours at the first time of asking. ‘’I have always dreamed of becoming a World Champion, and now my time has come,’’ said the 30 year-old.
Jack Culcay retained his interim WBA World Light Middleweight title with a unanimous points decision against the previously unbeaten Dennis Hogan last night at the Inselparkhalle in Hamburg, Germany.
A solid performance from Culcay proved too much for Hogan, who despite his best efforts was outclassed by the German fighter who landed the cleaner and more decisive punches.
To celebrate 35 years since ‘Hall of Fame’ promoter Wilfried Sauerland staged his first show on German soil, Team Sauerland present a special anniversary show on September 26 at the Max Schmeling Halle in Berlin, headlined by rising German stars Jack Culcay (20-1, 10 KOs) and Tyron Zeuge (17-0, 10 KOs).
Ulli Wegner is one of Europe’s most successful boxing coaches. A legendary figure in his native Germany, the 73 year-old has guided six fighters to world titles, including the undefeated former IBF and WBA (Super) Super Middleweight Champion Sven Ottke and the current WBO Super Middleweight king Arthur Abraham.
Jack Culcay (19-1, 10 KOs) is no stranger to success. In 2009, the German talent captured gold at the World Amateur Boxing Championships in Milan. Six years later, ‘Golden Jack’ will be attempting the same feat in the paid ranks, when he faces Maurice Weber (21-1-1, 8 KOs) for the Interim WBA World Light Middleweight title on Saturday night in Frankfurt, Germany.
Pictures: Photo Wende — WBO Super-Middleweight Champion Arthur Abraham ends the year with a bang. Abraham proved that he is back at the top after defeating Mehdi Bouadla by TKO in round eight in Nuremberg, Germany on Saturday night. The 7.000 fans in attendance witnessed a great performance by the titlist, who presented them with an early Christmas gift.
Abraham began the fight forceful. The prodigy of coach Ulli Wegner pressurized Bouadla right from the get go, just like he did in his fight against Robert Stieglitz on August 25. Powerful jabs found their way through the defense of the French challenger. Right towards the end of round one the champion let loose a salvage of heavy blows, which got Bouadla into trouble and the crowd rising from their seats and chanting Abraham’s name.
But the hard hitting titleholder did not only rely on his power and high volume of punches. By constantly switching his target from head to body, he was eager to keep the challenger guessing as to where he would attempt to hit him next.
