Timo Schwarzkopf vs Miguel Vazquez takes place Saturday, February 4, 2023, with 3 fights at Argensporthalle in Wangen im Allgaeu, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany.

Professional boxer Timo Schwarzkopf enters the ring against Miquel Vázquez in Wangen on February 4th. How he prepares and what big goal he has in mind.

Actually, Timo Schwarzkopf’s 27th professional fight should have taken place long ago. But then the 31-year-old boxer caught a flu infection – and he had to cancel the duel against Miquel Vázquez planned for December 17th. But now the time has come. “I resumed my preparations shortly after Christmas and had a very hard training session,” says Schwarzkopf.

On Saturday (February 4th) he will finally be back in the ring in his hometown of Wangen. And he appeals to the fans to ensure the hoped-for home advantage in the Argensporthalle: “I need your support and your presence. It’s going to be a really tough thing.”

Timo Schwarzkopf vs Miguel Vazquez Fight Card Preview:

In December, Timo Schwarzkopf (21-5, 13 KOs) was unable to compete in his big fight against Miguel Vazquez (44-11, 17 KOs) in Wangen im Allgäu due to flu (BOXSPORT reported). Now the German number one in super lightweight is fit again and is very happy that the promoter Swiss Pro Boxing managed to restart the fight. So he will now get into the ring against Vazquez on February 4, 2023, in the Argensporthalle in Wangen.

The Mexican promises to be a difficult touchstone for Schwarzkopf: the 178 cm tall Central American has competed for the IBF World Championship eight times in his career, leaving the ring as the winner seven times. The experienced 36-year-old from Guadalajara has already boxed in England, Canada, Macau and in the boxing Mecca “MGM Grand” in Las Vegas. “A lot of people say I’m crazy to box against such a world-class man. But I really want this fight, now more than ever,” says Schwarzkopf, who feels in top form.

In the second main fight of the evening, the unbeaten international German champion Altin Zogaj (10-0, 6 KOs) boxes against the German Armenak Hovhannisyan (13-2-1, 5 KOs), continental champion in the light heavyweight division. In the undercard, the duel between the powerful Swiss newcomer Christopher Mouafo (4-0, 4 KOs) and the experienced Nicaraguan Yader Cardoza (26-21-1, 8 KOs) promises to be interesting.

He’s a real number: Miquel Vázquez, 36 years old, 55 fights, 44 won. For four years, from August 2010 to September 2014, Vázquez was the IBF lightweight boxing champion. “He’s a world-class man,” says Schwarzkopf about his opponent.

Schwarzkopf always stuck to his plan to reach the top of the world. Yes, sometimes it went up, sometimes down. Six months ago, against his last opponent Zeus de Armas, he needed just one minute and 20 seconds to win. It was the 13th knockout in his record (21 wins, five losses) – and Schwarzkopf had the upper hand.

This time it will again be an all-or-nothing duel in the super lightweight. One of those fights that decide whether the thumbs are up or down afterwards. “My goal is to fight for the IBO World Championship this year,” says Schwarzkopf. With Vázquez he meets someone who has already fought eight times for the IBF world title and won seven times. One who follows a similar strategy to himself and who, even at a young age, did not compete against supposedly weak opponents. He made his debut against none other than superstar Saúl Álvarez, against whom he narrowly lost.

“If I beat Vázquez, it’s against Alejandro Meneses,” says Schwarzkopf. Meneses is the reigning IBO super lightweight champion, Schwarzkopf’s weight class. By the way, Vázquez usually boxes as a lightweight and has to adjust his weight slightly for his fight on Saturday in Wangen.

How is Schwarzkopf preparing this time? “I’ve worked a lot on my condition, in the past few weeks I’ve climbed the high ridge again and again,” says the professional boxer. In this way, he tried to adapt to Vázquez, who comes from the heights of Mexico. Sparring was also on Schwarzkopf’s agenda: “In the days leading up to the fight, I will retire to Niederwangen, calm down, sleep a lot, switch off there and focus on the fight.”

With Swiss Pro Boxing and Leander Strupler, Schwarzkopf has brought one of the leading boxing promoters on board for the first time: “But we are still involving the Wangen boxing club with Jürgen Rölli at the top.” Schwarzkopf’s fiancee Elsa and their brother Paul.

Miquel Vázquez was found as an opponent via Strupler. “I’m aware that I have to fight against someone like that in order to progress,” says Schwarzkopf. What he means by that is: You don’t mature with weaker people, but with stronger ones. And he still doesn’t feel he has reached the end of his sporting path: “I want to bring the world championship belt to Wangen.”
