Off topic but when I hear the name Gerber I always think of the american company that is famous for making baby food! I was going to post a photo and make a joke but Oh Well...

It´s probably, cause German boxing fans are more disciplined than Scottish for example. They are looking for the fight, they´re not there to drink and behave like 15 years old childs.

Gerber has one-punch KO power, he knocked his last opponent Yohan Banks out cold with a straight right.

I think he may have the potential to become a top ten heavyweight contender. It will be interesting to see how well he fares against better opposition.

When those foreign fighters have some succes and win titles Germans talk them as one of their own but when they lose and things not going on the way germans thought those Fighters are Russians/Africans, etc etc

Austrian/German = Germanic

Russian/Georgian = not Slavic

Note the difference

You are correct, most Austrians are German-speaking people.

What are Georgians anyway? A disjunct tribe from the Balkans? Many of them could pass for Greek and I think there is a sizeable population of ethnic Greeks that live there.

I doubt they have a cradle to grave nanny state like the Greeks, though. They also have a bunch of higher ups in their government that have Israeli citizenship, not the least of which is their Minister of Defense who orchestrated that massacre of ethnic Russians in Southern Ossetia.

no difference because we were talking about nations and you change your comparison into ethnic comparison

you realize that for many west nations countries, Ukraine and other republik that were part of USSR/CCCP and decided to seperate from it and become independent are seen as Russians, dont you?

would you agree with that oversimplification?

besides Austria and Germany are two seperate countries for hundred of years and I see a big similarity that Hilter was the same role for Germans as Stalin for Russians

Any links for this? That's a good fight on paper and a tough one for Gerber.
