Gutknecht: I have what it takes

Eroll Popova

After just 18 professional fights, unbeaten WBO #2 super middleweight Eddy Gutknecht (18-0, 7 KOs) finds himself in his first world title fight on Saturday night against WBO champion Robert Stieglitz (37-2, 23 KOs) at Bordelandhalle in Magdeburg, Germany. The 28-year-old Gutknecht earned his title shot by upsetting former champion Karoly Balzsay, the same man whom Stieglitz dethroned for the world title. When asked about facing Stieglitz, Gutknecht said “He has many strengths. He’s always moving forward like a machine firing a lot of shots. You get the impression that he gets stronger as the rounds go on. We’ve already seen in his fights that he’s a hard puncher. But that doesn’t make me nervous. I can deal with that and punch myself. I’ve been well prepared by my trainer Magomed Schaburov. I couldn’t have done more. I want to take the belt home with me. I know I have what it takes.”
