The traveler celebrates his 19th success in the 19th professional fight.

Wangen/Reisen – Even after 19 professional fights, Simon Zachenhuber remains undefeated.

The traveler won against Kilian Weck on Saturday evening with a technical knockout in the third round.

In other words: The referee had an understanding with the Westphalian, who had previously fallen to the ground twice.

Coach Conny Mittermeier was very satisfied afterwards: "Simon didn't give the opponent a chance." And the route was also right.

Round one began with palpation - which of course is a completely different number in boxing than in football, for example.

"First of all, I looked at what was behind his fists and then slowly increased the pace," says Zachenhuber.

"He didn't exactly throw cotton balls," said the 24-year-old, remembering a hit on the chin.

Yes, the Westphalian certainly scored his goals, "but it was like a soccer player kicking you in the shins," says Mittermeier.

The punches from Zachenhuber, who quickly found his rhythm and worked on the opponent's head and body, had a much more effective effect.

A liver hook with his left hand and his head with his right – it quickly became clear to everyone in the Wangen Arena who was boss in the ring.

It didn't get any better for Weck in lap two, on the contrary.

"I quickly noticed that it was breaking away," reports Zachenhuber.

Weck was bleeding from his nose.

"I tasted blood - in the truest sense of the word," adds the traveler with a smile.

Head, chin and again and again the liver - the opponent was clearly battered, already losing the will to fight.

“But his coaches sent him back.

They had already figured something out,” reports Mittermeier.

Weck wobbled, saved himself with brackets in the next break - which was then the last.

In round three, the 1.78 meter man had to endure a hail of blows.

Zachenhuber, seven centimeters taller, sent him down twice with body-head combinations and didn't even think about slowing down.

20 seconds before the end of the lap, Weck was on his way to the ground again.

But before what was probably the last blow, the referee intervened and ended the fight to the cheers of the many Zachenhuber fans: the 19th victory in the 19th professional fight, the eleventh by knockout or technical knockout

"Simon needs stronger opponents now," says Mittermeier.

The coach fox, who is completely unsuspected of flattery, means that as a compliment: he has now had the traveler under his wing for the fifth year.

In terms of fitness, punch, tactics and experience, Zachenhuber is now ready for new challenges.

And that should now come on March 23, because then, with Patrick Rokohl, a completely different caliber awaits Zachenhuber.

The man from Wolfenbüttel is not only ten years older and more experienced, but also a former WBO European super middleweight champion.

"For me, that would be the next step on the way to a title fight," says Zachenhuber, who was on his way to Stuttgart again yesterday afternoon;

where his training gym is.

And where Mittermeier and he are preparing for the fight in Hamburg starting this week.
