Abraham Holding Out For Money, Threatens Retirement

Former champion Arthur Abraham (36-4, 28KOs) is threatening not to fight on August 24th against Willbeforce Shihepo in Scherwin, Germany. According to reports, Abraham is unhappy with the purse being offered by his promoter, Sauerland Event, and the two-division beltholder wants more money.

"If Sauerland Event does not reach an agreement with my lawyer, I will not box....neither on August 24th or later on. I do not need to continue my boxing career, and I can finish it right now. Athletes should be treated fairly," Abraham stated.

The promoter's hands might be tied on this one, because a source told SportBox that ARD, the network broadcasting the August event, is far more interested in, showcasing the headliner, Jόrgen Braehmer, than the upcoming fight of Abraham. More than likely the network is not offering a big fee to pick up King Arthur's next fight.

Abraham was stopped on four rounds by Robert Stieglitz in March.

Without knowing the numbers, I suspect Abraham has a case. It's about supply and demand. AA is hugely popular in Germany and Sauerland is very thin on starpower at the moment. Sauerlands deal with broadcaster ARD tells them to make a certain amount of shows each year and without AA they are hard ...

It's a hard reality to admit when your no longer the main event and the purses get smaller.
