Juergen Braehmer Vows To Eliminate Eduard Gutknecht

Juergen Braehmer (38-2, 30 KOs) is doing everything he can to ensure that he gets the new year off to a winning start. The 34-year-old will challenge current European Light Heavyweight Champion Eduard Gutknecht (24-1, 9 KOs) when the pair meet inside the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, Germany. After having spent some of his training in Berlin and Schwerin, Braehmer and his coach Karsten Roewer have now travelled to the city of Guestrow in the north of Germany to add the finishing touches for the title fight.

Both met on Monday at 10.30 am for their first session in the city close to Braehmer's hometown. The first workout of the day saw the former WBO World Champion hitting the pads. In the afternoon the first sparring session took place. "So far I have been pleasantly surprised by him", said coach Karsten Roewer. "Juergen has a really good attitude. That is exactly what is needed in order to form a successful working relationship. We get along really well."

Back in 2009 Braehmer was already in possession of the EBU Title before he moved on to capture the WBO Belt, which he then lost at the round table, as he did not participate in any professional fight for almost two years. In January of 2012, the German gave his successful comeback in Hamburg against the Spaniard Jose Maria Guerrero. Another victory followed in April in Schwerin against Vikapita Merero from Namibia. Now he is aiming for another title.

However, the man standing in his way is the current Champion of Europe,  Eduard Gutknecht. The 30-year-old man form Gifhorn, Germany is sure, that the challenger is already past his prime. "This fight is not just about my European Title. The winner will also get a chance to fight it out for the WBO Championship," said the prodigy of Coach Ulli Wegner. "He is standing in the way of a potential title shot. Therefore I have to get rid of him."

If Cleverly can't secure a big unification fight, I'd like to see him fight the winner of this. At least it would be someone 'live' in the division.

Hope Gutknecht kicks his ass and then does the same to Cleverly

Juergen Braehmer was convicted for assaulting women. Hopefully Gutknecht will send the despicable scumbag into retirement.
