2010-04-24 Juergen Braehmer w rsc 5 Mariano Nicolas Plotinsky, Alsterdorfer Sports Hall, Hamburg, Germany - WBO. Referee: Paul Thomas.

On 11 December at the Echo Arena, Liverpool, England, Nathan Cleverly outpointed Nadjib Mohammedi over 12 rounds to win the vacant WBO ‘interim’ title.

Just days before making a defence against Cleverly, Braehmer pulled out stating an injury as the reason for his withdrawal, and the Welshman was installed as the champion on 19 May. The contest had already been postponed earlier in the year to allow Braehmer time to deal with a number of legal issues.
