WBO #1, WBA #7 rated light heavyweight contender Dominic Boesel (22-0, 8 KOs ) and Tony Averlant (24-8-2, 4 KOs) faced off at the final press conference for their clash on Saturday night at the Stathalle in Weissenfels, Germany. For Boesel, it could be his last bout before a world title challenge.
Dominic Boesel: “This is an absolute homegame! I’m very happy that we are so close to my home town of Freyburg. My circle of friends were able to sell 800 tickets to my fans. With my belts in hand, after the fight I’m going to give Tony Averlant a friendly “Au Revoir.” He’s not going to take away my world title dream!”
Tony Averlant: “I am here to get this belt, so I’m going to win. We have studied and analyzed Dominic in detail. I’ve looked at a lot of videos and have specifically worked and prepared myself. I had extra long training preparations in southern France.”
In the co-feature, German domestic welterweight champion Felix Lamm (12-1-1, 5 KOs) will face Andrea Carbonello (13-1-1, 2 KOs) in a jr welterweight bout for the WBO Europa title.
SES promoter Ulf Steinforth: “Very few tickets are left for this event in Weissenfels and with the many fans of Dominic and Felix fans from Nordhausen the hall will be buzzing. There is a great atmosphere and we hope again to great fights and victories from the two guys. Dominic and Felix have already lived together for years in a boxing training group. Probably the most successful so far, sometimes even a “world championship” boxing group.
