IT has been reported how Germany’s trainer of champions Fritz Sdunek passed away today from a heart attack. The 67-year-old died suddenly in a Hamburg hospital. A hugely respected trainer and former amateur boxer himself, Sdunek really did train a who’s who of gifted champion boxers.
Born in Lussow, Germany in 1947, Sdunek abandoned his own boxing career – during which he compiled a 129-fight amateur record, winning 99 of his bouts – to answer his real calling: that of teaching the Sweet Science. To others. Some of the big name the fighters Sduenk trained during his illustrious career include: Dariusz Michalczewski, Juan Carlos Gomez, Artur Grigorian, Ralf Rocchigiani, Alexander Dimitrenko and Mario Veit.
Boxing News express deepest sympathies to Sdunek’s family.
