Masternak: I will make ‘The Man Of Stone’ crumble on April 25

Mateusz Masternak (34-2, 24 KOs) has vowed to make ‘The Man of Stone’ Ruben Angel Mino (26-2, 26 KOs) crumble when the cruiserweights clash on April 25 at the Columbia Hall in Berlin.

Following an impressive points victory over former cruiserweight king Jean-Marc Mormeck, Masternak looks well on his way to a world title challenge. However first, the Polish-puncher must overcome tough opposition from the Argentinian knockout artist Mino, a man who has never heard the final bell, with his twenty-six victories and two defeats all ending in stoppages.

‘’This is not an easy task for Mateusz,’’ reflects the 27 year-old’s coach Ulli Wegner. ‘’He will need to be on guard and showcase his counter-punching ability to defeat a wild bull like Mino.’’


‘The Master’ knows he must follow Wegner’s instructions and has placed his confidence in the legendary German coach. ‘’Mr. Wegner is a master tactician, under his tutelage I’m able to play to my strengths more and more,’’ said the former European champion, before offering a final prediction on the outcome of his upcoming fight. ‘’On April 25, I will make ‘The Man Of Stone’ crumble in the ring.’’

Masternak joins a stacked card in the German capital. Tyron Zeuge (16-0, 10 KOs) tops the bill with an IBF International Super Middleweight Championship defence against former world title challenger Nikola Sjekloca (28-3, 8 KOs), while German stars Enrico Koelling (16-1, 6 KOs), Karo Murat (26-2-1, 16 KOs) and Burak Sahin (6-0, 6 KOs) all return to action.
