BOXING Axel Schulz will fight George Foreman for the heavyweight boxing title in the New Orleans Superdome on 22 April.

At 26, Schulz is 20 years younger than Foreman and around 45 pounds lighter as he seeks to emulate Max Schmeling, the only German to take the heavyweight title. in his last appearance, Schulz won a 10-round decision over the former WBA champion, James "Bonecrusher" Smith.

"It is a wonderful chance for me to go in the footsteps of a Max Schmeling or a Karl Mildenberger," Schulz said.
