LATE RESULTS: ARTHUR ABRAHAM VICTORIOUS IN GERMANY
Arthur Abraham TKO8 Mehdi Bouadla... In Nuremberg, Germany over the weekend, WBO 168-pound titlist Arthur Abraham stopped Mehdi Bouadla by TKO in round eight in front of 7000 fans in attendance. Towards the end of round one, the champion let loose a combination which put Bouadla into trouble. By switching his target from head to body, Abraham kept the challenger guessing as to where he would attempt to hit him next. Abraham turned up the heat once more in round seven. An uppercut as well as a big straight right hand made it evident that Abaraham was too much to handle for Bouadla. Abraham's
punches resulted in a deep cut on the challenger's right eye.
The 30-year-old did make it through to the break, but in round eight, it was clear that the injury had a big influence on Bouadla's vision, as he was not able to see Abraham's punches coming. Hence, referee Mark Nelson took Bouadla out of the bout after 2:11 of the eight round and declaring the German as the winner. Bouadla, who now has five losses in 31 fights, admitted right after the defeat, that Abraham was just too strong for him: "He was just too good. It is as simple as that. The referee made the right call by stopping the fight. Abraham was very impressive with his power and didn't allow me to land any of my counter-attacks."
