A real hit: Great start for Stefan Raab's brilliant boxers on ProSieben
The spectacular double-bill birth of a new sport: 19.6 percent of advertising-relevant viewers watch the premiere of Stefan Raab's "TV total quiz boxing" on Thursday evening on ProSieben. Up to 3.57 million viewers are enthralled by the combination of boxing and all kinds of quiz forms and see a doctor beating the reigning Mr. Olympia, a policeman taking victory over an advertising manager and a PR consultant being knocked out clean by a speed-reading trainer. The champions each win 25,000 euros, the "World Quizboxing Champion" title in their weight class and the opportunity to defend the title in the next episode of the show on ProSieben.
Lightweight: Ole Müggenburg (Hamburg) vs. Christoph Teege (Hildesheim)
A neat K.O.: During the third round, the 42-year-old PR consultant Ole runs into several left jabs from his opponent, a 31-year-old speed-reading trainer, and crashes to the floor.
Mediumweight: Dr. Thomas Logemann (Sömmerda) vs. Murat Demir (Bremen)
Topsy-turvy world: In boxing, 34-year-old trauma surgeon Thomas dominates his muscular 38-year-old opponent Murat, former Mr. Universe and reigning Mr. Olympia. In the quiz section, however, the muscleman is a step ahead. The decision is made in the decisive final quiz round. Thomas is able to commit the most animals to memory.
Heavyweight: Helge Georg (Niddatal) vs. Sascha Schmitz (Tönisvorst)
Advertising manager Sascha (33) drops quickly behind and keeps looking for the salvaging knockout in boxing - without success. In the final quiz round, policeman Helge manages to win, taking the World Quizboxing Champion title in heavyweight.
