Trainer Ulli Wegner, 71, signs contract extension

71-year-old iconic German trainer Ulli Wegner today signed a contract extension with Team Sauerland which binds him until early 2016. Wegner has trained 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. Wegner is currently preparing IBF cruiserweight 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 take place at the Brose Arena in Bamberg, Germany on November 23.
