In boxing terms the year for Team Sauerland ends with Arthur Abraham΄s title defense against Mehdi Bouadla on December 15.  However, the planning for 2013 has already begun and it will start off with a bang. The legendary Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, Germany will host the all-German affair between current European Champion Eduard Gutknecht (24-1, 9 KOs) and his compatriot and stablemate Juergen Braehmer (38-2, 30 KOs) on February 2.

Gutknecht clinched the EBU Title back in May of 2011 by a TKO victory in round eight over Britain's Danny McIntosh. Since then, he successfully defended the championship against Lorenzo DiGiacomo, Vyacheslav Uzelkov and Tony Averlant. The big four governing bodies of boxing all rank the prodigy of coach Ulli Wegner in their top ten.

"“It is going to be a great fight,” said 30-year-old Gutknecht. “I am highly motivated for this bout. First of all, it is an all-German affair. Added to that, the winner will get a crack at a world championship. Juergen Braehmer is one of the big names in the world of boxing. I am really looking forward to be facing him inside the ring.”

Former WBO Titlist Juergen Braehmer is also full of confidence when he is thinking ahead to the fight. ”

"I am just excited about getting back into the ring and fighting for my new team for the first time. I know what it feels like to be a European and world champion. My goal is to get back to that level. I have the chance to prove to everybody what I am capable of on February 2. I want to get back to the top,“ said the 34-year-old, coached by Karsten Roewer.

Chris Meyer, managing director of Sauerland Event: “We are happy to kick off the new year in Berlin. This will be a very exciting fight. Eduard Gutknecht is the current WBC number two, Juergen Braehmer is listed as the number two by the WBO. February 2 is not just about the highly regarded EBU Light Heavyweight Championship but also the position as the mandatory challenger for the WBO Crown.”

Tickets for the show at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, Germany will be available next week at www.eventim.de .

I don't know if I'd say slaughter because I think time and inactivity has taken a toll on him, but I do think he will or would win comfortably.

If Braehmer doesn't pull out for some reason and shows up, I fancy him to slaughter Eddy Gutknecht.

This article is a nice bit of hype that flatters both fighters excessively. Failing to mention that Braehmer pulls out of fights for dubious reasons more often than he fights them, and that in his last two "defenses," Gutknecht barely beat Uzelkoff if at all, and definitely got a gift over a com...
