Braehmer out, Kickboxer In ? WBSS


Nieky ??

Juergen Braehmer who was due to face Callum Smith in the second WBSS semi final for the right to fight George Groves at the o2 in June, has been ruled out of the fight due to ill health, he was checked over the weekend and again yesterday before it was made official, this has now opened the door for former champion kickboxer Nieky Holzken.

Holzken was due to fight on the under-card against Dmitrii Chudinov, but was given an opportunity he could not pass by.

Who is Nieky Holzken, as a boxer he is undefeated  in 13 contests with 10 knockouts but has never mixed in anywhere near the class of Smith and is more known as a champion kickboxer.

Dmitrii Chudinov, who has better boxing credentials has missed out for some reason, and Callum Smith who was seen as a huge favorite to progress to the final seems to have had things made slightly easier to ensure a all British clash for the o2 in June.
