I simply want to step into the ring in Magdeburg on September 23rd in front of the people who support me and show what I'm made of. I'm fit, and everyone will see it! That's a promise to my loyal fans who have always stood by me in every situation," declares Tom Schwarz.

Promoter Burim Sylejmani adds, "Tom is in excellent physical and mental condition. In contrast to him, his upcoming opponent has been consistently competing over the past few years.
