Tyron Zeuge (17-0, 10 KOs) is confident of overcoming what he describes as the toughest challenge of his fledgling career when he takes on domestic rival Eduard Gutknecht (28-3-1, 11 KOs) for the IBF International and WBO Intercontinental Super Middleweight titles on November 21 at the TUI Arena in Hannover, Germany.

The 23 year-old talent, who is coming off the back of a convincing points victory over Nikola Sjekloca in April, aims to move closer to a World title opportunity by beating the former European Light Heavyweight Champion.

‘’This will be the toughest challenge of my career so far,’’ confirms the Berlin-boxer. ‘’Gutknecht has been involved in many big fights against good opposition, so in terms of experience he is clearly ahead of me.

‘’But I’m confident in my own ability. Anyone who has seen me fight will know what I can do and where my strengths lie. I believe I have the better overall package and that will be the deciding factor in this fight.

‘’It has always been my goal to fight for World titles, and this will be another big step forward for me. After my performance against Sjekloca, many people said I was ready, but I leave that decision with my trainer and promoter. I know my time will come and when it does I will be ready!’’

In the opposing corner is a man who has already challenged for World honours. In 2010, Gutknecht went the distance with former WBO 168 lbs titlist Robert Stieglitz before moving up to light heavyweight. Now, back down to his original weight and with experience on his side, the fighter from Gifhorn is confident he can derail Zeuge’s promising career and renew his own World title ambitions.

‘’I think this fight has come too early for Zeuge,’’ said the 33 year-old. ‘’I’ve seen and experienced a lot in my career, whereas he is young and relatively inexperienced.

‘’I hold every advantage. I’m back at my best weight and I’m feeling stronger than ever, plus Hannover is within striking distance of my hometown Gifhorn so I will have the home support pushing me forward. This is a fight I can’t lose, and after I beat Zeuge, I want another shot at the World title.’’

The IBF International and WBO Intercontinental Championship contest between Tyron Zeuge and Eduard Gutknecht provides chief support for ‘King’ Arthur Abraham’s WBO World Super Middleweight title defence against Martin Murray. Tickets are available online via tickethall.de and eventim.de.
