Smith vs Holzken live

This Saturday’s World Boxing Super Series semi-final bout will go on despite Jurgen Braehmer pulling out as fight week started. England’s Callum Smith was set to travel to Germany to face Braehmer, and Smith will now be facing Holland’s Nieky Holzken, who steps in as a late replacement.

Britain’s unbeaten Callum Smith (23-0) and experienced former two-weight world champion Juergen Braehmer, has lost some of its lustre following the Germans late withdrawal. With interest in the WBSS at fever-pitch following George Groves semi-final victory over Chris Eubank Jr last weekend, this is an unhappy outcome.

Kudos to the WBSS on several fronts. It isn’t easy finding a late replacement and though Holzken (13-0) does not really have any type of serious reputation in boxing, he could bring a few wrinkles to Saturday’s fight.

When the WBSS announced the 168 pound tournament in conjunction with their cruiserweight tournament, boxing heads were filled with memories of tournaments gone bad. With Braehmer pulling out on fight week, the WBSS has faced their first adversity and they have sent a clear message: The tournament must go on.
