Vincent Feigenbutz vs. Cesar Nunez on Aug. 17 in Ludwigshafen, Germany

- Latest Cesar Nunez Vincent Feigenbutz


The IBO International super-middleweight title will be on the line when Germany’s Vincent Feigenbutz (30-2, 27 KOs) faces Cesar Nunez (16-0-1, 8 KOs) on August 17 in Ludwigshafen, Germany.

Following an emphatic fifth round demolition of Przemyslaw Opalach (27-3, 22 KOs) in January, 23-year-old former WBA super-middleweight World Champion Vincent Feigenbutz is looking to take the next step on his ‘Road to the Top’ and add the IBO International title to his collection.

“With a win over Nunez, the ‘KO King’ Vincent Feigenbutz is one step closer to IBO World Champion Chris Eubank Jr. That’s a fight we want, before facing fighters like Callum Smith, Billy Joe Saunders and Canelo”, said promoter Nisse Sauerland.

Feigenbutz has business against Nunez he must take care of

“Vincent has to take care of Nunez first, but we are confident he will live up to the ‘KO King’ nickname. Vincent is in top form, he’s highly ranked and we are looking forward to him putting on a show on August 17 and taking another step towards a world title shot.”

Whilst the unbeaten Spaniard Cesar Nunez has been preparing with esteemed Cuban trainer Pedro Diaz in tropical Miami, Vincent Feigenbutz has been fighting Europe’s heatwave as he looks to ensure he is ready for August 17.

“We had a good, but exhausting camp. The hot temperatures of 40 degrees certainly played a part in the gym,” said Feigenbutz. “Training is fun, but nothing compares to fighting. Slowly the excitement builds as we get closer to August 17.

“I am looking forward to fighting near my home town once again and I hope that fans in Ludwigshafen and from across the region will come out to support me!”


On August 17, German knockout specialist Vincent Feigenbutz (30-2, 27 KOs) will take the next step on his ‘Road to the Top’ against unbeaten Spaniard Cesar Nunez (16-0-1, 8 KOs) at the Friedrich-Ebert-Halle in Ludwigshafen, Germany.

“Vincent Feigenbutz is a local hero in Ludwigshafen and over the last few years he has established himself as one of Europe’s most dangerous boxers,” said Feigenbutz’s promoter Nisse Sauerland. “The Friedrich-Ebert-Halle is a venue we love coming to and I know the arena will be electric once again on August 17!”

“Cesar Nunez is undefeated so far, but I’ll change that and will do my best to end the fight early. Ludwigshafen can look forward to a great boxing night,” said Feigenbutz. “Now it’s about preparing myself the best way I can together with my team. It’s going to be a hard job, but I’m really looking forward to getting back in the ring on August 17!”

Feigenbutz was last in action at the Ufgauhalle in Karlsruhe headlining against the brave Przemyslaw Opalach on January 26, where he ended the fight with a vicious assault in the fifth-round and was declared winner by TKO.

Following yet another impressive performance and his twenty-seventh stoppage victory, Feigenbutz is moving ever closer on his quest for a World title, currently sitting #3 with the IBF, #7 with the WBO and #5 with the WBA.

“We are excited for Vincent to continue his ‘Road to the Top’ and become a World Champion once again,” said Sauerland. “He’s one of the heaviest hitters in the super middleweight division and we look forward to him taking over the World stage in spectacular fashion.”

Feigenbutz’s opponent is the aggressive come-forward Cesar Nunez who hails from Pamplona, Spain.
