Shumenov: ‘Braehmer doesn’t desrve to be world champ’

SHYMENT, Kazakhstan (Jan. 5, 2011) – A terribly upset and disappointed WBA/IBA Light Heavyweight World Champion Beibut Shumenov was in near shock to learn that his scheduled opponent for Saturday night’s unification fight, WBO titlist Juergen Braehmer, left Shymkent last night without informing or explaining why he has pulled out of “The Unification.”

Beibut Shumenov (10-1, 6 KOs) chose to fight Braehmer (36-2, 29 KOs) in a world unification match in only his 12th pro fight. However, Braehmer’s inexplicable behavior has left Shumenov without a world champion opponent for this weekend.

Here is a link to Shumenov’s interview shortly after he was informed that Braehmer had pulled out of the fight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2AT6FpfkSg

“The Unification” is being presented by Goossen Tutor Promotions and KZ Event Productions. Shumenov owns and operates the Las Vegas-based KZ Event Productions along with his brother, Chingis, and is promoted by Goossen Tutor Promotions.

A determination later today will be made regarding whether Saturday night’s show will proceed with three boxers fighting under the KZ Event Productions banner: WBA No. 13 welterweight Ravshan Hudaynazarov (13-0, 11 KOs) vs. former Mexican welterweight champion Jose Luis “Chelin” Cruz (41-7-2, 33 KOs), WBA FEDALATIN Welterweight Championship; former Kazakhstan National amateur champion Alexandr Zhyuravskiy Ahmedov (9-0, 7 KOs) vs. Ruben “Modern Day Warrior” Galvan (27-14-4, 10 KOs), WBA International Super Lightweight Championship; WBA No. 6 & Interim PABA light heavyweight Gayrat Ahmedov (15-0-1, 10 KOs) vs. 3-time world middleweight champion William Joppy (39-6-2, 30 KOs), Interim PABA & WBA International Light Heavyweight Championships.
