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

On May 5th top German prospect Gerber will take on long time contender Maurice Harris. Huge fan of Gerber and I am excited to see him prove his skill.

He's fluent in Russian, speaks German with a Russian accent and boxrec says he was born in Kazakhstan. Don't know what his real name is.

I thought he was an ethnic German from Kazakhstan? i.e. basically he's from the post soviet space but at least in his case someone really far down the line was German, which is more that we can say for most "German" prospects.

Ya i was thinking maybe his ancestors were Volga German's who emigrated in the 18th century or a situation like that. If that is the case his family would have been in Kazakhstan or Russia for 100-250 years so if Gerber is his real family name its unlikely hes a full blooded ethnic German, the name just got passed down the generations like you said.

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?

Gerber is with Sauerland. So maybe Pulev-Dimitrenko winner?

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

Pulev is with them too. Doubtful they would matchup their 2 most promising HW's.
