When Euro light heavyweight champion Eduard Gutknecht (24-1, 9 KOs) takes on 34-year-old former world champion Juergen Braehmer in Berlin on February 2, it won’t be just to keep his EBU Title but also to win the position as mandatory challenger for the WBO Champion, currently Britain’s Nathan Cleverly. “It is great to be that close to a potential shot at the world championship. I only have to take the next step. I will earn that chance by defeating Juergen Braehmer,” said “Eddy” about the all-German affair. Gutknecht and IBF cruiserweight champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez, both trained by Ulli Wegner, will spend the rest of their preparation time at the Olympic training facilities in Kienbaum near Berlin.
