Juergen Braehmer is in late his 30s and this is probably one of the last chances for him to compete at the top level stage. The additional motive could be prize money of this tournament which is $50 million. Juergen has a record of 48 wins with just 3 losses. Bad thing is that he retired in his last fight against Nathan Cleverly after 6 rounds due to possible elbow dislocation. That was less than a year ago. Braehmer has 35 KO's and he will look for a KO in this match because at his age 12 rounds look way too much. His opponent, Rob Brant is 27 years old. He is young enough to be at full strength and old enough to be experienced. The interesting part is that Brant is 1 cm higher (182 cm against 181 cm) but he has 2 cm less reach than his opponent (179 against 177cm).
Juergen Braehmer is left-handed, his southpaw stance could be a problem for Rob Brant who is fighting with an orthodox stance. Also, Braehmer is at the home field and will have the support of the 5000 people cheering for him. This venue is highly acoustic and Brant might not be used to that.
Juergen Braehmer is handicapped because 12 rounds are not the best format for older fighters. His body can't fight in the same tempo like it was ten years ago. Brant will try to use it and will try to extend the fight as long as possible.
Although odds are best for Braehmer, our prediction is a Brant win. He is going to extend the fight long enough and use his physical condition in the best way. Motivation is a key factor here, and since this fight is essential for his career, we are betting on him.
The better physical condition can be really important in 12 round matches. 39-year-old Braehmer will have to do a miracle to send Brant to the floor. That is the only way for him to win this fight, but it won't happen on the 28th. If the match goes to the decision, Brant will win. Braehmer's chance is the importance of the match because this is an essential fight in Brant's career and the pressure might tie his hands. He will be really motivated to win and he boasts a spectacular form, thus he gets our vote.
Rob Brant is a great boxer, 22-0 record with 15 KO's (68%) tells us who he really is. He is in the best ages for boxing and he is looking for step up in his career by showing himself on the biggest stage. This tournament is life-changing for him and he will not respect his opponent's years when they get into the ring. Point decision is the most expected way for this fight to be finished and the fresher hands of the 27-year-old will definitely be an advantage for Brant.
