The German is reportedly looking for an opponent after the one he was likely to face South African; Thomas Oosthuizen had pulled out from the scheduled bout for personal reasons.
Nevertheless Chilemba who is in similar position having lost to Eleider Alvarez of Colombia during his last November bout said he is not discouraged by Mendoza declaration.
He hopes that promoter, Katy Duva, of Main Events Promotion who reportedly put his name on the list to face the Germany would work things out in his favour.
He said he is the right candidate better placed to face Braehmer because he is on number three of World Boxing Council (WBC) rankings while cleverly is ranked on the position eleven by the same organization.
“I hope they don’t choose Cleverly or any other non-ranked opponent as they have done in the past.Yes,I also lost my last fight but the decision was contentious.
“However, at least I am still ranked number three with the WBC, where as Cleverly is at eleven,”Chilemba told WBN Boxing News.
But latest reports indicates that Long Island’s, Sean Monaghan has emerged as leading candidate on the shortlist also making it on the list under consideration to face Braehmer is Swedish Light Heavy Weight pugilist, Erik Skoglund.
But Monaghan has emerged on the shortlist of leading candidates to slug it out with Braehmer in a secondary light heavyweight title bout on March 19.
Sauerland Promotions USA representative, Don Majeski reportedly confirmed the development with Ring TV.com Thursday.
“Monaghan , a former bricklayer, has been angling for a title fight in recent years and has been vocal about getting his shot,”The website reported.
