Dominik Britsch 100% Focused on Snagging Return Win

Dominik Britsch (26-1-1, 9 KOs) has faith. Not only does he believe in himself but also in the fact that he has learned all the right lessons out of his last fight, which simultaneously was his first defeat as a professional. And he is aiming to prove that when he steps inside the ring of the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin - but he will do so as a super-middleweight. The opponent of the night will be Luis Crespo (8-3-1, 4 KOs) who has done something Britsch could not: beat Roberto Santos! Back in February 2012, the 25-year-old German fought out a gritty draw and seven months later lost the rematch in Bamberg, Germany. 

"Everything was going according to plan. It was a pretty easy fight - maybe a bit too easy right until round seven. Until then I was performing well," remembers the orthodox fighter about the EU Title clash. But suddenly he felt distracted: "Out of nowhere I lost my mouth guard and consequently my concentration. Shortly after that, he landed a shot to my liver. I did manage to get into the break and regain some strength but from that moment on my mind was just completely off," Britsch explains the blackout. Shortly after he was taken out of the fight in round eight.

However according to Britsch himself, he has learnt his lessons: "I have to ensure that I am always 100 percent focused. My mind has to be on the fight right from the beginning to the end."

Now Britsch wants to prove that he has learnt his lesson when he takes on Luis Crespo. The man from Spain is not just a tough opposition because he beat Santos. Crespo fights as a southpaw and also has a reach advantage over Britsch. "That is exactly the kind of challenge I need after such a loss," says the prodigy of Coach Ulli Wegner. "I am fighting a man who beat the guy I lost to. Mentally I can rehabilitate myself with a victory."

It seems like Dominik Britsch is back and only looking ahead. He definitely has not lost sight of the goals he is chasing after. "One day I want to be a European or world champion. That is why I became a professional in the first place. But first of all, I have to prove that I am better than my last fight. In order to do so, I need to show a convincing performance against Crespo."
