Default Re: Talented German Prospect Edmund Gerber will get huge test verses Maurice Harris!

More to the point i hope he looks impressive against Harris. I didn't realize Gerber was only 23, would be nice to see him vs a top 10 guy after this if he wins rather than jump into a title shot. Adamek, Chagaev, Boytsov, Arreola or someone like that to gain experience.

who promotes Gerber?
BTW, are you Vysotsky after the great bard or the boxer, or is that your name?
