Arthur Abraham: One Last Throw Of The Dice.

The Two Weight World Champion Isn't Ready To Call It A Day ... Just Yet


By Aaron Cooper

Father time catches up to all of us eventually. It’ll happen to me, it’ll happen to you and everyone else around us. While we know we will face the inevitable, for a professional fighter the clock ticks so much faster on what is ultimately a short career.

Now we certainly can’t beat the clock, but we can sure as hell try and wind it back up again.

Arthur Abraham has had a fine career, one many would be jealous of. With two losses in four fights, and at 38 years old, his best days are long behind him. But he isn’t ready to retire, not just yet anyway.

‘King’ Arthur will throw the dice one final time in a make or break super middleweight showdown on April 28 at the Baden Arena in Offenburg, Germany. Standing between him and one last hoorah in the super-middleweight ranks is Denmark’s, Patrick Nielsen. The Dane too is attempting to rebuild his career following a knockout loss to John Ryder at Wembley Arena in October last year.

“After my last fight, I spoke to my coach Ulli Wegner and he helped me reach a decision,” said ‘King Arthur’. “I am not ready to retire! There is still more I want to achieve in boxing, and most of all I want to become World Champion again.

“I’m looking forward to fighting Patrick Nielsen, and putting on a good performance for my fans. I know Patrick is a good boxer. This will be a good test for me and a chance to prove I’m ready to challenge for World titles again.”
