Thomas "Nova" Troelenberg (born January 20, 1987 in Greifswald ) is a former German middleweight boxer.


Troelenberg started boxing at the age of ten and moved to the Schwerin state performance center at the age of fourteen . As an amateur, he played 90 fights, including 75 wins and five draws.

In 2005 he became a professional at the Sauerland boxing stable and played his first professional fight against Erdal Kahraman on August 28, which he won over four rounds by winning points.

On December 15, 2006 he boxed against Marcen Gierke for the international German championship title in the super middleweight division. The fight ended in a draw after ten rounds, but Gierke was later proven to have taken marijuana , which is why Troelenberg was declared the winner by disqualification, and he was awarded the title.

In 2007 he won on points against the multiple Belgian and Benelux champions Mike Algoet, as well as against the two Latvian champions Martins Kukulis and Olegs Fedotovs.

On September 27, 2008 he was with a knockout win in round seven over Steve Klockow, German middleweight champion. Almost three months later he also won the rematch against Marcen Gierke by knocking out in the fourth round. In March 2009 he won by knockout in the third round against the unbeaten Lithuanian Virgilijus Stapulionis in 15 fights.

On August 22, 2009 he was with a points win after ten rounds over Jean Kamdoum, International German Middleweight Champion. On November 13th of the same year, he also beat the multiple German champion Marco Schulze by winning the points.

On April 24, 2010 Troelenberg boxed in a Danish Super Six duel against the Italian and later IBF Mediterranean champion Elio Cotena and won on points. Troelenberg stood in on behalf of his Austrian colleague Marcos Nader , who was not allowed to participate due to his age because of the lack of a special permit.

On June 5, 2010 he suffered the first defeat of his professional career against the Poles Mariusz Cendrowski when he lost over eight rounds on points. Then a rematch was agreed, which was also about Troelenberg's future. The Sauerland boxing stable had announced that it would not extend the contract with Troelenberg, which was valid until November 30, 2010, if it lost again.

However, he lost the rematch on October 30th prematurely by giving up in the third round after his lower jaw was smashed by a right hook. He was then treated at the Berlin Accident Hospital , where he underwent emergency surgery and his jaw was straightened with metal plates and steel wires. He was only allowed to eat liquid food for the next six months.
