Ulli Wegner To Continue His Run With Sauerland Event

Ulli Wegner's eagerness to succeed has not waned just yet. The 71-year-old signed a contract extension with Team Sauerland on Tuesday, which binds him until early 2016. Wegner lead fighters like Sven Ottke, Markus Beyer, Arthur Abraham, Marco Huck, Yoan Pablo Hernandez and Cecilia Braekhus to world title honors after joining the professional ranks in 1996.

"I want to provide clarity, especially to my prodigies," said the man who was named German "Trainer of the Year" annually for the last decade. "I want to point the way that I am far from done working as a corner man - I have still a lot to give and will lead them to success."

"Ulli Wegner not only is a corner stone of our promotion, but a shining light of the whole German boxing scene. I cannot imagine our team without him. We are all happy that he extended his contract," said Kalle Sauerland.

Wegner currently stays at the German Olympic Center in Kienbaum to prepare IBF Champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez for his mandatory title defense against Alexander Alekseev as well as light heavyweight contender Eduard Gutknecht, who has an IBF Semi-Eliminator lined up against Dmitry Sukhotsky. Both fights will headline a big night of boxing at the brose Arena in Bamberg, Germany on November 23. Tickets can be purchased at www.eventim.de and www.boxen.com .
