Unbeaten HyeFighter sensation Karo Murat (22-0, 13 KOs) from Germany, faces the biggest test of his young careers on September 18 when he travels to Birmingham for a special night of boxing at the LG Arena.
Murat takes on Nathan Cleverly (19-0, 9 KOs) in a WBO light heavyweight title eliminator. “There is so much talent on our team and I am convinced that both Karo and Alexander will be future champions,” said promoter Kalle Sauerland. “They are unbeaten and fearless and they are traveling to England to shock the boxing world.”
Murat is oozing with confidence. “First I will defeat Cleverly and then I will chase down WBO Champion Jurgen Brahmer,” he said. “Cleverly appears to be a big talker. I have read interviews where he puts himself on the same level with Joe Calzaghe. There is no way he is in the same league with him so he should not be saying something like that.” Murat knows it will be a tough fight. “He is pretty big, so it will not be easy to get to him,” he added. “But a lot of my opponents have been bigger than me – like Tommy Carpency, Sergey Demchenko and Gabriel Campillo – and I have defeated all of them. I am still unbeaten. I really look forward to traveling to Birmingham. The British fans love to see good boxing and that is why they will like me.”
