Maccarinelli, who is very well known with pay per head sportsbooks for his talent and boxing odds, suffered no less than five defeats by means of knockout, but the fighter is confident that in Rostock, Germany, the step down in weight division will pay up.
The 33-year-old Welshman said: “I’ve had 20 championship fights in my career from British to world title level and it is all experience in the bag.
“But I think the fight against Braehmer will be totally different and I won’t be reliant on any of that previous experience – it will come down to who wants it more, and that’s me.
Boxing betting fans and price per head services also know very well how experienced he is, and believe that his knowledge could be his greatest asset in this upcoming fight.
“I was making the cruiserweight limit easily for world title fights and I just felt that I could go down to light-heavyweight and still retain my power, which has been the case. I am faster and stronger now.”
