Arthur Abraham (33-3, 27 KOs) will take on Piotr Wilczewski (30-2, 10 KOs) at the Sparkassen-Arena in Kiel on March 31.
“It´s all or nothing for Arthur,“ promoter Kalle Sauerland said at today´s press conference. “He needs to beat Wilczewski to put himself back in a position to fight for the world title.”
Abraham, who celebrated a successful return in January when he knocked out Pablo Farias in the fifth round, knows it’s make or break. “I know there is a lot of pressure but I will make a good fight and beat Wilczewski,” he stated.“I have high goals. I want to be world champion again.”
Added coach Ulli Wegner: “We don´t fight any push-overs or easy opponents. It´s very simple, I expect a good fight from Arthur and a victory.”
Said Wilczewski, a former European Super-Middleweight Champion said: “I´m coming here to win. Arthur is a strong guy but I will defeat him.”
