Default German HW prospect Edmund Gerber

Can somebody fill me in on this young gun?

At 21, he's already creeping up the rankings, appearing seemingly out of nowhere in the past few months with a knockout of Rene Dettweiler, and then of a fellow unbeaten Euro away from home.



Here I see a slow starter with a good right hand and valid instincts about finishing - sort of in the mold of nominal countryman Arthur Abraham. At 6'3" and averaging a fighting weight of 235, he is in decent shape and seems to box fairly well, so he would appear disciplined for his age compared to a lot of his contemporaries in the division.

Did he have a prolific amateur career? Does he train with any big names in Germany? Is he being hyped up over there or not expected to get much past the domestic level?
