“Tyron has had a perfect training camp and is well prepared to go into the ring,” said Braehmer.
“Technique, punch and footwork – these are strengths Tyron possesses. He just has a lot of talent.
“Of course, there is always room to improve, and he has not yet shown his full potential. He is learning with every fight and will only get better.”

Zeuge retained his belt by stopping Isaac Ekpo in a rematch in March, while he previously sealed a wide points win over Fielding’s fellow Liverpudlian Paul Smith in June 2017.
During his lengthy preparations, Zeuge admits he has not studied much footage of Fielding, but respects the power that his opponent possesses.
I’ve watched a few of his fights and he looks like a good boxer with decent punching power so it should be a good fight.
“We’ve been through an intensive training camp back in Schwerin, and I have been learning a lot as always from my trainer Juergen Braehmer,” said Zeuge.
“I do not spend much time watching my opponents. I leave that up to Juergen, who I know has analysed him closely to come up with the right game plan.
“I’ve watched a few of his fights and he looks like a good boxer with decent punching power so it should be a good fight.”
