Unhappy Hoffmann v Kretschmann/Teper v Airich on September 14

12 rounds on an outdoor show in Halle, promoted by Hoffmann himself.
Hoffmann is horribly shot and slurs his speech worse than James Toney.
Kretschmann is the German Tom Dallas, former prospect with no heart.
Not sure what either fighter hopes to gain from this other than even more brain damage. Sad fight

Also, Erkan Teper v Konstantin Airich, another 12 rounder on the same card on September 14.
That is an interesting fight, I don't rate Teper who just appears to be a Euro version of John McDermott but he can make a statement if he beats Airich.

Sadly yeah. After an SD loss to Botha in a WBF title fight in 2009, he drew with fat ex-cruiserweight Alexander Petkovic (who was robbed apparently) and beat cruiserweight can Jonathan Pasi over 12 rounds last year.

Also he slurs his speech horrifically, very sad to hear.

You would expect Kretschmann to win this, but he's also rubbish.

Wow, didn't realize the thing with Hoffmann's speech. Just saw a recent interview, it's really sad.

I don't speak German, but it's still pretty obvious.

Teper v Airich will be an interesting one, Teper can really make a name for himself if he can stop Airich who went the distance with Solis and beat Pala.

Bad Main event, sick of seeing both, Teper-Airich is interesting, Teper wins it'll be good for him.
