This will be the 6th defence of Braehmer’s World Title and he knows his opponent well, having beaten Gutknecht on points back in February 2013.
The all-German World Title contest takes place at the Jahnsportforum, in Neubrandenburg, Germany.
Promoter Kalle Sauerland said:
‘Super news that the UK fans can see World Champion Juergen Braehmer live on Sky Sports. Many talk about Kovalev and Stevenson, but Braehmer has dominated the division this side of the Atlantic for a long time. The Gutknecht fight sold out at the venue within a week – the first fight was tough and the second will be no different.’
