Plotinsky's Opponent in a Car Wreck

In what has already been a weird build up to a championship bout, Jürgen Brähmer, who is scheduled to take on Mariano Plotinsky this Saturday, wrecked his car today. According to Focus.de (in German), Brähmer totaled his BMW, but survived the incident uninjured.

Brähmer, who was sentenced to 16 months in prison for assault in January and is appealing to overturn the conviction based on a technicality, is making his second defense of the WBO light heavyweight title. Earlier in the week, it was reported that the cancellation of flights to Europe, due to the cloud of volcanic ash floating over the continent, was complicating Plotinsky's arrival. The fight is still scheduled to take place in Hamburg, Germany on Saturday.
