Arman Torosyan (16-2-1, 13 KOs) has stepped in as a late replacement to face Eduard Gutknecht (28-3-1, 11 KOs) on Saturday night at the TUI Arena in Hannover, Germany.
Gutknecht was originally scheduled to fight Tyron Zeuge, but yesterday, the Berlin boxer was forced to withdraw after contracting a viral infection.
‘‘We spoke to Arman last night after it became apparent that Tyron would be unable to compete and he accepted the fight immediately,’’ said Christian Meyer, CEO of Sauerland Event. ‘’He has not stopped training since his last fight and he is eager to cause an upset.’’
‘’This could well be my last chance,’’ said Torosyan, who returns following a points loss to Nuhu Lawal in October. ‘’In my last fight, I didn’t box to the best of my ability, so against Gutknecht, I want to show that I should not be written off!’’
In the evening’s main event ‘King’ Arthur Abraham defends his WBO World Super Middleweight title against Britain’s Martin Murray, live on SAT.1 in Germany and Sky Sports in UK.
