Arthur Abraham will return to the ring on Nov. 5 in Germany against an opponent to be determined, according to a report from Manouk Akopyan of Yerevan Magazine.

After an unsuccessful super middleweight stint in the Showtime Super Six tournament, the former IBF middleweight champion from Berlin via Yerevan, Armenia, has confirmed a return to the weight class that showcased his greatest successes.

“[Abraham] is officially back down to 160, his true weight class,” reported Akopyan.

Abraham, who made 10 defenses of his belt from 2006-09, would love to get a shot at the WBA version of the strap that currently sits around Felix Sturm’s waist.

“In my interview with him, he did say how he'd still like to fight [Kelly] Pavlik like they once were in talks to do, but he maintained that Sturm is what he and the German public wants,” Akopyan continued.  “It would be a no-brainer.”

Sturm has an open date for Nov. 26 in Cologne, Germany.

“A fight against Sturm would be a cash generating cow in Germany,” Akopyan opined.  “Both bring in thousands of fans and would sell out the O2 Arena in Berlin in no time.”

AA has almost nothing left -- really a precipitous fall in stature in so short of a time -- was he so overrated back then or has he just fallen apart?

Martinez vs Abraham would be entertaining. Sturm/Abraham makes the most business sense bc it guarantees Abraham one last big payday.

[QUOTE=Ravens Fan]Abraham loses three out of four fights and what is his reward? A shot at a middleweight belt. Apparently it doesn't matter if you win or lose or how bad you look while losing, see Abraham's last few fights. Is it any wonder why none of the top contenders fight each other and jus...
