German contender Vincent Feigenbutz will be taking on the biggest test of his professional career when he shares the ring with IBF super middleweight champion Caleb Plant (19-0, 11 KOs) this coming weekend at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
A media workout held ahead of their upcoming showdown on Wednesday gave the US media an opportunity to meet Feigenbutz,who is nicknamed “KO King” due to his knockout reputation and Punching power before he went on stage to showcase his unique abilities.
Feigenbutz acknowledged the fact that he will be stepping into enemy territory come fight night but reiterated the fact that no one is unbeatable and that he is coming to make reality his dream of winning a world title.
“I am fighting an American fighter on American soil, so everyone knows that a knockout will make it easier to get the victory,” said Feigenbutz. “However I believe that no boxer is unbeatable and this definitely applies to Caleb Plant.
“My team and I have analysed what Caleb’s strengths and weaknesses are,” Feigenbutz continued. “He is a strong boxer and very good athlete, however I am a German warrior. I have a strong punch and I’ve proven that many times. I will look for my chance until the very last second and I am a fighter who will never give up.”
Feigenbutz,who is going to be making his US debut , hasn’t fought outside Germany since 2016 but has admitted, he is fitting in nicely to the new environment also commending the Americans for their hospitality and gave out a few words for his fans back in Germany.
“My jet lag has gone and I’m feeling very comfortable. I’ve been out in the city and there seems to be a lot of excitement about the fight. I’ve met lots of nice and hospitable people who have treated my team and I with respect and it’s good to see the Americans are looking forward to the fight.
“Even though my fight will be in the middle of the night I’m sure my fans will stay up to watch me in Germany. It’s good for me to know that any fans who couldn’t travel to Nashville will still be watching on TV and cheering me on, this gives me even more motivation. I hope I can do my part to bring German boxing back to where it belongs!
The 24 year old also thanked everyone who has supported him throughout his career, family, sponsors , partners and friends. he also wants to make his country proud with this opportunity seeing that a win will be walking in the right direction.

A big thank you goes to my promoter Team Sauerland, my partners, sponsors, friends, family and my manager Rainer Gottwald. On Saturday I will repay you!”
