King Arthur back in Berlin

The IBF Middleweight Champion is ready for his 10th title defence

King Arthur Abraham has returned to Germany´s capital following an exhausting training camp at the Baltic Sea. The undefeated IBF Middleweight Champion (29-0, 23 KOs) is determined to defend his title for the 10th time when he takes on Mahir Oral (25-1, 10 KOs) on Saturday night. “Everything went very well in practice,” King Arthur said. “We had everything we needed in Zinnowitz – fresh air, the sea, good food and a decent gym.”

The sparring sessions went very well, meaning King Arthur will against be oozing with confidence on Saturday night. “I never underestimate an opponent,” the 29-year-old said. “Oral punches a lot and likes to be inside. But I don´t mind. I will please my home fans.”

Abraham only has the best of memories of the Max-Schmeling-Halle. In August 2007, he knocked out Khoren Gevor in the ninth round. “I hope I will win by KO again,” he said. “But you can never predict one. If it comes, fine. If not, I´ll win on points. The only thing that matters is that I will leave the ring victorious.”

Ulli Wegner was also confident of success. “Arthur will attack him to the body,” he predicted. “We have practised a special combination which you have never seen before. Mahir is a good guy but it will be very difficult for him on Saturday night. Arthur has been very focused in the last couple of weeks and did what I wanted him to do in practice. All he has to do is confirm his shape inside the ring. Then he will remain the champion”.
