WBO #1 and WBA #7 light heavyweight Dominic Boesel (22-0, 8 KOs), closing in on a world title shot, will return September 17 against an opponent to be named at the Stadthalle in Weissenfels, Germany. Boesel will be defending his WBO and WBA Intercontinental belts. In the co-feature, German welterweight champion Felix Lamm (12-1-1, 5 KOs) will see action. The card was announced this week at a kickoff press conference.

Dominic Boesel: “In the last three years I have matured and grown as a boxer. Boxing again in the vicinity of my hometown Freyburg is great because my fan base has grown enormously in the past three years. Anyone can come who wants to. I’ll take on anyone! I hope soon to get a world title shot!”

SES Trainer Dirk Dzemski: “Dominic has undergone the development that we expected from him. He has enormously increased his physical strength and his technically high-class boxing has expanded! Now we all hope that the biggest challenge, the world title shot, won’t be long in coming!”

SES promoter Ulf Steinforth: “In retrospect, after three-years we can say with pride that “Team Germany” is a great success. When we presented the team three years ago here at this same place, no one could assume that out of the six fighters, three would have titles. Besides Dominic Boesel and Felix Lamm, who both have developed among the finest boxing styles, we have Tom Schwarz, the Youth heavyweight world champion. This is good for German boxing! Here in Weissenfels, we’re holding the ‘Boesel Festival.’ Dominic Boesel has his world ranking at risk and is targeted. And I predict that the arena will be sold out!”

Arthur Abraham (42-4, 28 KOs) has vowed to bring an end to his feud with domestic rival Robert Stieglitz (47-4-1, 27 KOs) when the German super middleweights contest the WBO World title for a fourth time on July 18 at the Gerry Weber Stadium in Halle. The fighters began their now familiar pre-fight routine with a kick-off press conference today, in which the reigning champion promised to provide a conclusive finish to their long-standing rivalry. ”Four fights with Robert is enough for me,” declared Abraham. ”Of course, victory is always the most important thing, but on July 18, I don’t just want to win, I want to win decisively and prove once and for all that I am the better man!”

Abraham holds the advantage, having triumphed in two of their three previous encounters, but while ‘King Arthur’ eyes a conclusive third victory, Stieglitz aims to settle the score with a second win over the Berlin-based boxer. ”I have analysed all three of our fights in detail,” reveals Stieglitz. ”With the right tactical adjustments, I have no doubt that this time I will be victorious!”

Ahead of their anticipated fourth encounter, Abraham’s coach Ulli Wegner has compared July 18’s battle with Germany’s most heated soccer rivalry. ”This is ‘Der Klassiker’,” declared the 73 year-old. ”The Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Dortmund of German boxing! Just like Munich vs. Dortmund, this great rivalry always promises excitement! Arthur must enter the ring in top condition or risk losing his position at the top of the super middleweight division.”

Stieglitz’s coach Dirk Dzemski shares Wegner’s excitement, predicting a ”spectacular fight” at the Gerry Weber Stadium. ”This fight will be on a knife’s edge,” said Dzemski. ”Both boxers know how hard it will be to beat the other and fans can look forward to a spectacular fight. Arthur had better be well prepared because we’re ready for it!”

Mit mindestens vier großen Titelkämpfen kehrt das Magdeburger SES-Box-Team nach fünf Jahren nach Dessau zurück. In Kooperation mit „Dessau-Roßlau sportlich“ wird am 26. Juli 2014 Ex-Weltmeister Robert Stieglitz in der Anhalt-Arena am 26. Juli 2014 um den vakantenWBO-Inter-Conti-Gürtel im Super-Mittelgewicht kämpfen. Sein Gegner in diesem Titelkampf ist ein „Geist“. Diesen Kampfnamen trägt Sergey „The Ghost“ Khomitsky (29-10-2 (12)), der sich vor gut zwei Monaten den Gürtel des WBO-Europameisters in England mit einem K.o. in der sechsten Runde gegen den ungeschlagenen Briten Frank Buglioni sicherte. Robert Stieglitz ist also gewarnt, denn der erfahrene Weißrusse Khomitsky hat sich so wieder auf die Position 9 der WBO-Weltrangliste vorgearbeitet. Mit diesem Gegner wird Robert Stieglitz seine Mission „Das WM-Projekt!“ angehen. Für Robert Stieglitz gilt nun, sich schnellstmöglich in Position zu bringen, um gegen den amtierenden Weltmeister wieder um „seinen“ WBO-Weltmeistergürtel zu boxen. Dafür muss zuerst der „Geist“ Khomitsky besiegt werden!

Robert Stieglitz: „Ich bin heiß auf den Geist! Khomitsky ist für Überraschungen gut, ausgeschlafen und er boxt schlau. Sein Sieg gegen Buglioni kam nicht von ungefähr. Man darf ihn nie und nimmer unterschätzen. Ich bin gewarnt. Wenn ich mir „meinem Gürtel“ zurückholen will, dann geht der Weg nur mit einem klaren Sieg über diesen „Geist“!“

SES-Chef-Coach Dirk Dzemski: „Robert ist seit gut fünf Wochen wieder voll im Training, hochmotiviert und fokussiert. Er ist stärker, wenn er etwas haben will, als wenn er schon etwas hat!“

SES-Promoter Ulf Steinforth: „Khomitsky war der am höchsten gerankte Fighter aus der Rangliste, der sich dem Kampf gegen Robert stellt. Wir wollen die Ungerechtigkeit aus dem WM-Duell mit Abraham so schnell wie möglich wieder gerade rücken!“

Die neue große Herausforderung für Doppel-Weltmeisterin Christina Hammer: in der neuen Gewichtsklasse Junior-Mittelgewicht trifft sie im Kampf um den vakanten WBO-Weltmeistertitel gleich auf „Hochkaräter“ Anne Sophie Mathis

14486685001_651fa27b6a_n

Die Doppel-Weltmeisterin im Mittelgewicht Christina Hammer (17-0-0 (8)), die sich im Jahr 2013 nach einem Ausflug in Super-Mittelgewicht auch in dieser zweiten Gewichtsklasse dieWBO-/WBF-Weltmeistertitel sicherte, steht nun vor einer neuen großen Herausforderung. Mit dem „Abstieg“ in die nächste leichtere Gewichtsklasse und dem sofortigen Angriff auf den vakantenWBO-Weltmeistertitel im Junior-Mittelgewicht geht die Ausnahme-Boxerin Christina Hammer aus Dortmund einen im Boxsport ungewöhnlichen und fast einmaligen Weg. Und, sie macht es sich nicht einfach.

Mit der mehrmalige Welt- und Europameisterin Anne Sophie Mathis (27-3-0 (23)) aus Frankreich hat sie bei dieser „neuen Mission“ gleich eine der stärksten Boxerinnen der Welt als Gegnerin! Mit ihrem K.o.-Rekord von 23 Ko’s in 27 siegreichen Kämpfen ist die Französin Mathis, die in ihrer Heimat spätesten nach ihren Fights gegen die Amerikanerin Holly Holm eine „Box-Legende“ ist, eine riesige Herausforderung!

Christina Hammer: „Ich liebe Herausforderungen und ich will im Frauenboxen neue Maßstäbe setzen. Anne Sophie Mathis ist natürlich in dieser für mich neuen Gewichtsklasse eine echte Größe mit einer riesigen Ko-Quote. Das schockt mich aber nicht und ich stelle mich der Herausforderung, die Besten zu boxen. Es gibt genügend Frauen, die vor mir immer wieder davonlaufen!“

Robin Krasniqi trifft auf Oleksandr Cherviak – der Angriff auf die WM-Titel-Chancen bei  derWBO und der WBA

14486684821_caf757dd63_n

SES-Halb-Schwergewichtler Robin Krasniqi (41-3-0 (16)) hat neben der Verteidigung seines WBO-International-Titels im Halb-Schwergewicht auch den vakanten WBA-Continental-Titelim Visier. Nach seinem krachenden Ko-Sieg gegen Emmanuel Danso im März in Potsdam hat sich Krasniqi beeindruckend in der Box-Szene zurück gemeldet. Gegen den Ukrainer Oleksandr Cherviak (14-3-1 (4)), der bei der WBA auf Position 8 und bei der WBO als Nummer 15 geführt wird, kann der Münchener Krasniqi nun in zwei Weltranglisten den Sprung nach ganz vorne schaffen. Als Nummer 3 der WBO-Weltrangliste und als siebter im WBARanking hat Robin Krasniqi eine ideale Ausgangsposition, um sich bei einem Sieg zeitnah wieder eine WM-Chance zu erarbeiten.

Robin Krasniqi: „Mein K.o.-Sieg in Potsdam war das Resultat einer klaren Strategie. Mit der Verbesserung meiner taktischen Varianten kann und werde ich jeden schlagen. Cherviak hat gute Namen geboxt und geschlagen, ich aber werde ihn besiegen. Mein einziges Ziel ist ein nächster WM-Kampf. Dieser kann gerne auch gegen Jürgen Brähmer sein!“

SES-Promoter Ulf Steinforth: „Mit dem Kampf um die Titelverteidigung des WBO-International-Titel und um den vakanten WBA-Continental-Titel schlagen wir bei Cherviak „zwei Fliegen mit einer Klappe“! Auch ein deutsches Duell mit Jürgen Brähmer kann so dann  möglich werden. Nur, erst einmal muss Robin seine starke Leistung aus dem letzten Kampf in Potsdam wieder abrufen!“

14488835682_e1f5766f7e_nWBO-Inter-Conti-Champion Dominic Bösel wird sich mit großer Fan-Gemeinde erster Titelverteidigung stellen

Dominic Bösel (15-0-0 (5)) aus Freyburg/Unstrutkommt mit seiner großen Fan-Gemeinde in die Dessauer Anhalt Arena. Der ungeschlagene frühere WBO-Junioren-Weltmeister, die Nummer 8 der WBO-Rangliste und der aktuelleWBO-Inter-Conti-Champion im Halb-Schwergewicht,kann sich bei seiner ersten Titelverteidigung im „Senioren-Bereich“ wieder der Unterstützung seiner Fans sicher sein. Mit Bussen werden diese zahlreich nach Dessau reisen und für eine großartige Stimmung sorgen.

Dominic Bösel: „Mit dem Kampf in Potsdam und dem Niederschlag bin ich im „Seniorenbereich angekommen. Es war ein starker Gegner, er hat mir alles abverlangt und ich musste mich in einer Extremsituation beweisen. Das habe ich geschafft und gewonnen!“

SES-Coach Dirk Dzemski: „Dominic hat Willensstärke bewiesen, sich durchgebissen und nach hinten heraus den Kampf wieder „gerade gebogen“. Diese Erfahrung braucht ein junger, hochgelobter Boxer und diese nimmt ihm keiner mehr!“

WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (46-3, 26 KOs) and former champion Arthur Abraham (38-4, 28 KOs) will complete their trilogy on Saturday night at the GETEC Arena in Magdeburg, Germany. The series is 1:1 so far, with Abraham winning by decision in Berlin in August 2012 and Stieglitz winning by fourth round TKO in March 2013 in Magdeburg. SES outbid Sauerland Event to bring the rubber match back to Stieglitz’ backyard.

Today’s press conference took place in Magdeburg’s Cultural History Museum.

Robert Stieglitz: I am delighted that the press conference is again here in the Cultural History Museum. That gave me luck the last time and that’s exactly how it should be again. Saturday will be a real collision in the ring. Outside the ring I’m relaxed, because I’m here at home and Arthur is coming into the lion’s den. I will defend my title successfully and not give in.

Arthur Abraham: The previous fights are in the past, we are very well prepared and promise an exciting fight the fans will like. I have many fans here backing me. I don’t feel like I’m in a lion’s den. but rather in the cave of the cat. No matter where I’m boxing, I feel at home. It’s all or nothing! There’s nothing more important!

SES trainer Dirk Dzemski: We have a good plan. The question is, who can implement their tactics best. And I’m sure that’s Robert. The difference is our great team.

Abraham trainer Ulli Wegner: I think we all can do something great on Saturday. If it’s named as “Fight of the Year”, that’s fine. I feel terrific in Magdeburg, since the public is so knowledgable. Both camps are very well prepared. This fight is what makes boxing so interesting.

SES promoter Ulf Steinforth: Robert and Dirk Dzemski were a team for the first two sensational fights. The third fight had to take place here, because we have been successful here. It’s important to me because I’m superstitious and it has always worked so far. This third fight is super exciting. We have all the support we have always wanted, which is virtually an unbeatable advantage. This is also about the rivalry of the trainers, experience against youth, and it’s a battle of the promoters. But, here in Magdeburg we’re good hosts!

Sauerland Event promoter Kalle Sauerland: We look forward to a great fight. You only have to look at the first two fights. Trilogies are better than rematches. It’s “Champions League” boxing. We know what to do and look forward to being his guest.

Stieglitz-Ekpo Public Workout

 

101613stieglitz00tOver 500 fight fans turned up on Wednesday to see WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz and his challenger Isaac Ekpo conduct public workouts at the Paunsdorf Center in Leipzig, Germany. The titleholder showed up with trainer Dirk Dzemski and appeared to be in a good mood and in great shape for the fight on Saturday at Leipzig Exhibition Hall EINS.

 

His opponent, Nigerian Isaac Ekpo, didn’t show much. In the training ring, he completed only a few light exercises with the jump rope and practiced shadow boxing. Ekpo was given a few pairs of goalie gloves so he can resume his career as a goalkeeper after presumably losing the world championship fight.

 

The world champion, however, gave the fans several minutes of pad work with his coach, then he stayed and fulfilled boxing fans’ many requests for autographs.

 

Also showing their skills were WBC Youth titleholder Dominic Bösel, ex-IBF champion Jan Zaveck, and Tom Schwarz and Tom Pahlmann from “Team Germany.”

 

On this coming coming Saturday, Robert Stieglitz defends the WBO super middleweight crown against Isaac Ekpo.

WBO super middleweight Champion Robert Stieglitz (45-3-0, 26 KOs) will defend his title against #7 rated Isaac Ekpo (22-1, 16 KOs) of Nigeria on October 19 at the Messe Halle in Leipzig, Germany. The card will also feature a clash between IBF flyweight champion Moruti Mthalane (29-2, 20 KOs) and Spaniard Silvio Olteanu (14-6-1, 6 KOs) plus WBO Youth jr welterweight beltholder and leader of SES Boxing’s “Team Germany” Dominic Boesel (12-0, 4 KOs) will take on Italian Mirko Ricci (10-1, 4 KOs).

“This is my last title defense of the year,” said Steiglitz at today’s press conference. “Leipzig is a special city for me. It’s not far from Magdeburg and I have a lot of fans…we did preliminary analysis of the challenger Isaac Ekpo. He’s aggressive and muscular. I’ve been working a lot with my legs and speed. My Teammate Jan Zaveck invited me to spend two weeks at a training camp in Ptuj, Slovenia.”

Regarding his WBO mandated defense third fight against Arthur Abraham, Stieglitz stated, “That’s quite normal and I’m happy about it. As world champion I must box everyone anyway.”

Trainer Dirk Dzemski added “I’m very pleased with Robert this year, especially that he came away without injury from the fight against Kiyota. Now comes the hot and stressful phaseof the preparation, the training camp in Slovenia. One thing is certain, it will only be a vacation for me (grins). Isaac Ekpo is hungry, can hit hard – this will be an exciting thing that you must take very seriously.”

SES promoter Ulf Steinforth stated: “Leipzig is something special. We’ve had the city on our list and now we bring the best of what we have. We anticipate 6,000 spectators and with the new seating system, we can expand capacity quickly. The next fight against Ekpo is difficult enough for Robert. Ekpo is the current #7 in the world rankings. That’s why we can’t make any further plans. Dominic is a worthy captain of Team Germany. That a competition is emerging within Team Germany is, of course, good. We’ve proved that there are very talented young boxers and it’s fun to promote and to see them. Robert is currently the boxer with the most fights, a true role model, a mentor for Team Germany, which is what I’m most proud of. In Leipzig we’ll have Team Germany, Jan Zaveck and the newly added IBF flyweight championship completing the card. Out of eight fights we will have four title fights.”

Ticket sales will start at the end of the week.

Stieglitz-Kiyota press conference highlights

thumbs_7813stieglitz004

Photos: Peter Gercke/SES Boxing –

A press conference was held Monday for Saturday’s big SES Boxing world championship boxing card at the Energy Verbund Arena in Dresden, Germany. WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz defends his title against Yuzo Kiyota in the main event. Kiyota wore a surgical mask the entire time.

Robert Stieglitz: In the last fight in Dresden, the audience was great, so it’s like boxing at home here. I’ve had a look at the last fights of Yuzo Kiyota. He boxes aggressively, goes forward and is physically strong. On Saturday I must once again call on what I can do.

Stieglitz’ trainer Dirk Dzemski: Up to now I only know Yuzo Kiyota from videos. He’s a strong kid. Robert must validate his performance from March (against Arthur Abraham).

Yuzo Kiyota: It’s common for Japanese athletes to protect themselves from infection. That’s why I wear the mask. Robert Stieglitz boxes very fast. He’s a good fighter. I want to win this fight with a knockout.

The card also features two-division female champion Christina Hammer once again at middleweight defending her WBO and WBF titles, middleweight Lukas Konecny defending the WBO European belt, and German heavyweight champion Michael Wallisch defending against Alexander Kahl. In addition, recent light heavyweight world title challenger Robin Krasniqi and Axel Shulz’ super middleweight discovery Dario Bredicean will see action.

Robin Krasniqi: I have taken a lot of experience out of the world title fight against Nathan Cleverly. I was very sad about the defeat, but I’m a fighter and I’ll show it.

Lucas Koncny: It’s nice to box in Dresden. This is ideal for my Czech fans.

Michael Wallisch: I learned to box almost around the corner in Chemnitz. I have a lot of friends in Dresden. It’s like a second home for me. It is important to fight for the German championship. Finally it should be clarified by the German heavyweights who is the best.

Promoter Ulf Steinforth: SES has at the moment the best boxing there is. In 2010, [our card in] Dresden was the birth for the deal with SAT.1. So, naturally there was no question that the new run should start in Dresden. I’m happy about all the fights on Saturday. This is a top card for the Energy Verbund Arena. Especially the appearance of Michael Wallisch pleases me. He has an attractive boxing style and the balls to go toe-to-toe. This isn’t always the case in the heavyweight division.
