Junior Middleweight Slawa Spomer Seeks to Become Germany’s Next World Champ

From former world heavyweight champion Max Schmeling to former long-reigning super middleweight champion Sven Ottke and two-division world champion Arthur Abraham, the country of Germany has a history of producing high-level fighters and world champions. Slawa Spomer (18-0, 9 KOs) aspires to become Germany’s next great fighter.

After a brief amateur career that consisted of only nine fights, Spomer turned pro in 2018 as a middleweight. In the fall of 2020, the pride of Heilbronn, Baden-Württemberg, Germany decided to move down to junior middleweight. The decision has yielded noteworthy success.


In June 2022, Spomer scored a first-round knockout over Victor Ionascu to win the WBO European junior middleweight title. He followed that up with a ten-round unanimous over Egzon Maliqaj in December 2022 to capture the WBO Global junior middleweight belt. Those victories put him in the world rankings.

Spomer’s most recent outing was an eighth-round knockout over Felice Moncelli on June 24 in Heilbronn. After feeling Moncelli out in the early rounds, the unbeaten German began to warm up. He put Moncelli down in the seventh and finished him off in the following round. has seen Spomer in action. When facing a pressure fighter, the 30-year-old can keep his opponents at bay and box on the outside. But Spomer has also shown the ability to apply pressure. He has good hand speed and throws a variety of combinations to the head and the body.

Currently ranked tenth by the WBO at 154, the junior middleweight prospect would love to raise his profile and improve with each fight. If he keeps winning, the hope for him and his team is a world title shot in the next twelve to eighteen months.
