Eduard Gutknecht in Top Form For Braehmer Clash

Judgment day is getting closer! Current EBU-Champion Eduard Gutknecht (24-1, 9 KOs) is ready to defend his title against former WBO World Champion Juergen Braehmer (38-2, 30 KOs) at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, Germany on February 2. Just a few days ago, Gutknecht and assistant coach Georg Bramowski undertook a fitness test on the treadmill, which the 30-year-old champion passed with flying colors. That test was now followed by an assessment of his all-around punching abilities as a boxer, which includes power, precision and stamina. Again, Gutknecht showed an outstanding performance, which testified that he is already in good shape to defend his title in less than a month.

"Eduard showed how powerful his jab and straights are. The treadmill test also proved to us, that he has the durability to go the whole distance," said Bramowski, who is convinced, that Gutknecht will cause his stablemate some serious problems when they meet in the German capital. "First of all Juergen Braehmer has to be able to go twelve rounds. For him, that will be hard enough as it is."

However, the current EBU Light Heavyweight Champion Gutknecht does not pay too much attention to the praises of his coach.

"This test just shows you, where you currently stand from a physical point of view. Now I know that I am already in a very good shape. If I manage to take advantage of my technical abilities, I will not only leave the ring as the European Champion but will also be fighting it out for the WBO World Championship in the near future," said the optimistic Gutknecht ahead of his fight with the 34-year-old challenger Juergen Braehmer.

Tickets for the big fight night at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin on February 2 can be purchased at www.boxen.com and www.eventim.de .
