Abraham Takes on Shihepo In Schwerin


Arthur Abraham (36-4, 28 KOs) begins his fight back to the top. Three months ago, the 33-year-old lost his WBO Super-Middleweight Title to Robert Stieglitz. Now the prodigy of Coach Ulli Wegner returns on August 24.

 

The former champion will fight it out for the vacant WBO Intercontinental Title against Willbeforce Shihepo (20-6, 15 KO´s) at the Sport- und Kongresshalle Schwerin.

 

“Obviously I felt pretty low after losing the world championship. In the end, an injury to the left eye led to the loss. I have never experienced anything like that before. But now all I do is look ahead,” said Abraham, who is currently ranked as the number four rated contender by the WBO. The super-middleweight added: “I am excited about my fight in Schwerin. By beating Shihepo, I want to become the WBO´s mandatory challenger and fight for the championship once again.”

 

The undercard sees local hero Juergen Braehmer (40-2, 31 KOs) face Stefano Abatangelo (17-2-1, 6 KOs). The current European Light Heavyweight Champion from Germany is aiming to defend his EBU Title for the second time.
