Vincent Feigenbutz (19-1, 18 KOs) will face Mauricio Reynoso (15-1-1, 11 KOs) for the Interim WBA World Super Middleweight Championship as chief support for Arthur Abraham’s fourth WBO World title fight with Robert Stieglitz on July 18 at the GERRY WEBER STADIUM in Halle, Germany.

Feigenbutz gets his first shot at world glory when he takes on the Peruvian-puncher Reynoso, and the 19 year-old KO specialist aims to prove he is ready for global domination by becoming the youngest German fighter to claim a version of the world title.

‘’Since I started my professional career, I have said that my goal is to become world champion,’’ said Feigenbutz. ‘’Many people laughed at me and said I would never achieve this, but on July 18, I will prove all these people wrong and show I have what it takes to become the next world champion.’’

To ensure he is in peak physical condition, the boxer from Karlsruhe will be travelling to the Slovenian mountains to undertake an intensive training camp. ‘’The mountains provide the ideal training conditions for Vince,’’ reveals Feigenbutz’s manager Rainer Gottwald. ‘’He will be in top shape on July 18 and ready to announce himself on to the world scene.’’

Said promoter Kalle Sauerland: ‘’Vince is a phenomenal athlete. At just 19 years of age he has already worked his way to the top of the division. On July 18, he can cement his position by becoming the WBA Interim World Champion. A victory is never enough for Vince, he wants to knock his opponents out, and this guarantees excitement for the fans at the Gerry Weber Stadium.’’
