Alexander Abraham takes fight in France

Press Release: IBF middleweight champion Arthur Abraham will travel to Pont-Audemer, France to support his younger brother Alexander (19-0-1, 14 KOs), who will box against French 154-pounder Mehdi Azri (12-5, 2 KOs) on May 6, 2008.  "Alexander is very close to my heart," said King Arthur. "He has supported me a lot of times. I want to keep my fingers crossed for him in France too. He is undefeated, if he wins he will have good chances to make bigger fights. I'm his brother, so I´m very excited." Beyond the 26-year-old Alexander Abraham, junior welter Koko Murat (5-0-1, 3 KOs) will be on the card also. The main event will feature Ali Chebah (24-0, 18 KOs) against Nicaraguan Nelson Lara (15-1, 8 KOs) in a 140-pound clash.
