Stefan Raab and Regina Halmich will get into the boxing ring again. On September 14th, the German former boxing world champion will fight the entertainer for the third time. This time it will be the “Final Fight”, held on September 14, 2024 in front of 15,000 spectators in the arena of the PSD Dome in Düsseldorf. Raab was unsuccessful against Halmich in 2001 and 2007. The two boxing matches were broadcast by ProSieben. However, the broadcaster will not show the renewed duel.

ProSiebenSat.1 boss Bert Habets announced this on Tuesday (April 30) at the ProSiebenSat.1 general meeting, as can be seen from a ProSieben report on X. “Good to know. We will not be showing the Raab-Halmich boxing match in the fall. Our boss Bert Habets has just confirmed this again at the P7S1 general meeting,” it says. As “DWDL” reports, this refers to the entire broadcasting group.

As the “Bild” newspaper reported at the beginning of April, the spectacle could take place on a channel that has not yet been born: Raab is currently working on his own TV channel. According to the report, behind the comeback there is a “major attack on the established TV world”. Stefan Raab is planning his own streaming offer that will focus primarily on smartphone users and mainly broadcast entertainment topics.

At the beginning of the year, after his withdrawal from the production company Brainpool and the associated Raab TV, Raab founded his new company Raab Entertainment together with the former ProSieben/Sat.1 boss Daniel Rosemann. According to the report, there are currently no major comeback plans as a presenter: the boxing match with Stefan Raab is only planned to ignite the hype. He will then work behind the cameras again. Halmich also confirmed this in an interview with “Bild”: “Stefan will definitely only come back for this one fight.”
