ARTHUR ABRAHAM LAUNCHES NEW CAMPAIGN IN AUGUST
Press Release: Arthur Abraham (36-4, 28 KOs) begins his quest back to the top three months after the 33-year-old lost his WBO 168-pound title to Robert Stieglitz. Abraham's next fight is now booked for August 24th in Schwerin, Germany against Willbeforce Shihepo (20-6, 15 KO). “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.
The super middleweight added: “I am excited about my fight in Schwerin. By beating Shihepo, I want to become the WBO mandatory challenger and fight for the championship once again.”
The fans in Schwerin also have a fight between local hero Juergen Braehmer (40-2, 31 KOs) and Stefano Abatangelo (17-2-1, 6 KOs) to look forward to. Braehmer, the current European light heavyweight champion is aiming to defend his title for the second time.
