De Carolis vs Zeuge this Saturday in Berlin

Tyron Zeuge (18-0, 10 KOs) says he is ready to make history on Saturday night when he challenges Giovanni De Carolis (24-6, 12 KOs) for the WBA World Super Middleweight title at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin.

The undefeated 24 year-old can become Germany’s youngest ever World Champion with a victory over the experienced Italian, beating Graciano ‘Rocky’ Rocchigiani’s record of 24 years and 73 days by 8 days.

He will face a tough task against the 31 year-old from Rome, who claimed the WBA World title in January with an eleventh-round TKO win over Zeuge’s stable mate Vincent Feigenbutz at the Baden-Arena in Offenburg.

However, the Berlin-boxer insists he feels no pressure going into his first World title fight and is looking forward to celebrating a historic night at his hometown arena.

‘’I’m not nervous,’’ he says. ‘’I know there is a lot at stake, but I will approach this fight the same way I do every fight. I will not let anything affect my focus. I will concentrate on what I have to do in the ring, go in there and win the fight.

‘’Berlin is my city, and it’s always nice to fight at home. It will be a great feeling to have all my family and friends there supporting me and hopefully cheering me to victory. I look forward to celebrating with them all after the fight.’’

Zeuge has credited the work he has done with coach Juergen Braehmer, the current WBA World Light Heavyweight Champion, in preparing him for Saturday’s World title tilt.

‘’Working with Juergen has been a real eye opener for me,’’ he says. ‘’He has shown me what it takes to make it to the top. My work rate and discipline has increased and I’ve never been better prepared.

‘’He is also very calm in the corner and I trust him to give me the right instructions in the ring. He is a World class fighter and a World class coach, and together we will make history!’’

De Carolis confident of retaining World title against Zeuge

Giovanni De Carolis (24-6, 12 KOs) is confident of retaining his WBA World Super Middleweight title on Saturday night when he returns to Germany to face Tyron Zeuge (18-0, 10 KOs) at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin.

Having claimed the WBA strap with an eleventh-round TKO win over Vincent Feigenbutz at the Baden-Arena in January, the Italian fighter makes his first defence against another of Germany’s rising super middleweight stars, the undefeated 24 year-old Zeuge.

‘’Tyron Zeuge is a talented young fighter,’’ says De Carolis. ‘’He is fast, he has good footwork and is technically very skilled, but he has been protected so far in his career. He has fought some good opponents but most have been tailor made to suit his style. I believe this will be his first real test, and we will find out how good he really is.

‘’My experience will of course play an important part, but it is not everything. Take for example my physique; I am now much physically stronger and more robust than I was when I was as a 24 year old. If I was to fight myself from eight years ago today, I would win easily, and I believe that will be the case on Saturday night.’’

If successful, the 31 year-old reveals that he would be open to a rematch with former two-weight World Champion Arthur Abraham, who faces Scandinavian star Tim-Robin Lihaug on the undercard of his World title defence.

‘’I’m looking forward to fighting in Germany again,’’ he says. ‘’This is where I won my World title and where, three years ago, I fought Arthur Abraham. He is one of the best fighters of our generation, and although I lost that fight, I learnt a lot. It gave me the belief that I could compete at the highest level, and without this experience, I would not be a World Champion today.

‘’Of course, I would like a rematch with Abraham. He gave me the chance to measure myself against him and I would love to avenge my defeat, but for now, all my focus is on Zeuge and defending my title on Saturday night.’’

Tyron Zeuge battles Giovanni De Carolis on 7/16

Tyron Zeuge (18-0, 10 KOs) will challenge Giovanni De Carolis (24-6, 12 KOs) for the WBA World Super Middleweight title on July 16 at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin.

The 23 year-old, who is trained by WBA World Light Heavyweight Champion Juergen Braehmer, takes on the tough Italian, who claimed the WBA strap with an eleventh-round TKO win over the highly-rated German fighter Vincent Feigenbutz.

If successful, Zeuge will make history by becoming Germany’s youngest ever World Champion, beating Graciano ‘Rocky’ Rocchigiani’s record of 24 years and 73 days by 8 days.

‘’This is the opportunity of a lifetime,’’ said Zeuge. ‘’Whether I’m ready for it, other people will have to judge. But one thing is for certain, on July 16, I will give everything to fulfill my dream of becoming World Champion.’’

The Berlin boxer’s coach Juergen Braehmer believes his protégé is ready for the challenge. ‘’Based on his potential, there is no better boxer in Germany than Zeuge,’’ said the two-time World Champion. ‘’I believe he is ready to make history by taking this title!’’

Braehmer can also make history on July 16, as never has an active World Champion coached another boxer to World title success.

Promoter Kalle Sauerland is thrilled to have delivered his young star a World title opportunity. ‘’Between the European Football Championships and the Olympic Games, we have another sporting highlight for the summer,’’ said Sauerland. ‘’Tyron Zeuge is leading the way for a new generation of World-class German boxers, and by beating De Carolis, he can take his place among the best in the World.’’
