Tyron Zeuge interview ahead of Giovanni De Carolis rematch this Saturday

Ringnews24.com: Who is your current trainer and where do you train?

Conny Mittermeier / Jürgen Braehmer, I am training at the Olympic Centre in Schwerin.

Ringnews24.com: Who did you look up to growing up as a boxer – who was your idol?

I started light training at the age of 3 and began real boxing training at 6. I first did it to please my late father, but later did it just for myself. I never had an idol boxing wise.

Ringnews24.com: Who has been the biggest influence in your career so far?

Juergen Braehmer, he showed me how to focus your aims and make your dream come true – being a world champion. I will do everything possible to complete this November 5.

Ringnews24.com: Who is the toughest opponent you have fought to date?

Giovanni De Carolis.

Ringnews24.com: Your last fight was a majority draw against Giovanni De Carolis, what are your thoughts on the majority draw and your rematch?

I thought that I did better than him before I injured my right shoulder halfway through the fight. I thought that I still edged it. Still I know I can do better when being fully fit. That’s what I want to show in our rematch.

Ringnews24.com: You suffered a shoulder injury midway during the fight, how did that affect your performance? How is your shoulder?

It healed up well and I could start light training 3 weeks afterwards. It had a big influence on this fight – just try to fight with just one fit arm yourself – and this was a world championship!

Ringnews24.com: How is your training going and how would you compare it to
previous training camps?

I train even harder than last time around, but basically it where the same workouts – just intense.

Ringnews24.com: If you could fight anyone from history who would it be and why?

Your choice – I am not very keen on the history of boxing. Maybe a guy like Joe Calzaghe.

Ringnews24.com: What fight taught you the most as a boxer?

The first bout vs. De Carolis – you can shake hands and be friends before and after the fight. But when the bell rings, you have to be vigorous and take no prisoners to come out on top.

Ringnews24.com: All your fights have taken place in Germany, would you like to fight in any other country or particular cities?

Of course. Las Vegas or New York would be my first choice.

Ringnews24.com: Do you have a message for the fans?

Come and watch me become a champion this Saturday – I am here to stay!
