Jürgen Brähmer (born 5 October 1978) is a German professional boxer. He is a two-time former light-heavyweight world champion, having held the WBO title from 2009 to 2011, and the WBA (Regular) title from 2013 to 2016. Additionally, he has held the European light-heavyweight title twice, in 2009 and 2013.
As an amateur, Brähmer accumulated 95 wins in 100 fights.
Brähmer went undefeated in his first 27 professional fights, losing for the first time to fellow German Mario Veit. His second loss was against Hugo Hernan Garay. Brähmer won the WBO interim light heavyweight title by knocking out Aleksy Kuziemski on 22 August 2009. On 13 November 2009, Brähmer became the WBO world light heavyweight world champion after the title was vacated by Zsolt Erdei, who moved up to cruiserweight. Brähmer successfully defended the title on 19 December 2009, winning a unanimous decision over Dmitry Sukhotsky and then again in 2010 against Mariano Plotinsky.
A title defence against interim champion Nathan Cleverly was supposed to take place on 21 May 2011, but Brähmer withdrew from the bout the week of the fight citing an eye injury. Due to him withdrawing, the WBO stripped Brähmer of his title and awarded it to Cleverly.
After Beibut Shumenov was elevated to Super champion status by the WBA, Brahmer was given the chance to fight for the vacant regular WBA title. In December 2013, he defeated Marcus Oliveira in Germany to claim the title and since then has successfully defended it against Enzo Maccarinelli, Roberto Bolonti, Pawel Glazewski, Robin Krasniqi and Konni Konrad. Brähmer lost the WBA title on October 1, 2016 to Nathan Cleverly. This was his seventh defence of the title. Brähmer retired after round six claiming he had dislocated his shoulder. A rematch was talked about following the fight.
