New opponent for Gutknecht – Dickinson out, Vidal in!

Former European Champion Eduard Gutknecht (24-2, 9 KOs) has a new opponent to prepare for. Originally, the 31-year-old German was supposed to take on Travis Dickinson at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, Germany. However, the Brit pulled out of the fight and will now be replaced by Richard Vidal from Uruguay on June 8. The 37-year-old will be a tough challenge in Gutknecht´s quest to capture the vacant WBA Intercontinental Light Heavyweight Championship. “

I have been preparing for Dickinson and his strengths,” said Gutknecht. “But I am aiming to get back to the top. Therefore, I have to deal with these uncomfortable situations. Vidal is in great shape and has quite some experience when it comes to title fights. I won’t make the mistake of underestimating him.” 

Tickets for the big fight night at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, Germany are available at and
