Nobody expected the 33-year-old: Robin Krasniqi is the new light heavyweight world champion. And the likable 33-year-old could hardly believe his luck the day after the win against Dominic Bösel. Robin Krasniqi actually bought in as a substitute opponent for world champion Dominic Bösel, crowns his long career and himself a champion. Crashing right hands already ensured the sensational victory of the 33-year-old in the third round, who could not really grasp it the day after. He slept 40 minutes a night, said Krasniqi in the “SpiO” talk from Sport im Osten. Next to him are the two world championship belts of the WBA and IBO: “I said I do and risk everything. I wanted to give everything. In my head, I could do it. Others said it was the last fight. But it is the beginning. I don’t care what comes next. ” Proud and happy This evening, Krasniqi continues, he will never forget. “It was the best moment of my life. To achieve this goal without an amateur fight – I’m proud and happy.” Above all, it is madness that he delivered such a fight at the World Cup.
Previously, Krasniqi, who came to Germany from Kosovo in 2004, lost the World Cup matches against Nathan Cleverly (2013) and Jürgen Brähmer (2015). But this time the Krasniqi team had come up with excellent tactics. “I had a lot of plans, I saw gaps in Dominic. I wanted to do it with an uppercut first. Then a left hook, then the right straight.
“We had nothing, my father brought the family here in 2004. I wanted to start boxing in Germany. I’ve always believed in this dream since I’ve been in Germany. I’ve been with SES for 10 years, now the World Cup – madness. ” Rematch will come Despite his big win, Krasniqi is not thinking about a vacation. “Even a vacation doesn’t make me happier. Maybe it’ll get boring. I want to enjoy the time with my friends.” The rematch is contractually regulated, will come. But currently, Robin Krasniqi just wants to admire and enjoy his belt.
