Former IBF middleweight champion Arthur Abraham is set to return to 160-pounds to revive his career after three defeats from five bouts at super middleweight, it was announced Saturday. Abraham was undefeated in over 30 fights at middleweight but lost three of his five fights at super middleweight. Abraham's promoter, Wilfried Sauerland, said the boxer could possibly return to the middleweight division in November.

"I want to prove I can come back," he told SID, an AFP subsidiary. "No one should write me off. Just because I lost recently, it doesn't mean I have lost my sporting ambitions."

Having often struggled to make the weight at middleweight, Abraham has been ordered by Sauerland to take expert advice to keep his weight down.

"It can only work if he works with a nutritional consultant and he strictly adheres to this plan. He hasn't done that before," said Sauerland.

[QUOTE=patpatpts]bro he got beat up for 2 years at 168[/QUOTE] By the two best guys in the division. Dirrell was quite possibly about to get his sh*t pushed in if not for that DQ incident. If he wanted to stick around and take on some other 168lbers, AA could improve at the divisio...

[QUOTE=Adam Konitz]I've always appreciated Abraham, but this is a G.A.Y. move. Sure, he took a couple losses to the best two guys in the division (I'm not counting Dirrell, for obvious reasons), but he hasn't really given himself time to develop his style and adapt to the weightclass - this ...

Yeah, AA sucks its not that he was too small. His power makes him live and because of this he can beat an even more awful fighter in JC jr. because that dude is a punching bag.

[QUOTE=Tobi.G]He will fight some nobodys first, just to see if he can make 160 and if he feels good at the weight they will try to fight for a belt. Abraham vs. Sturm would be a mega fight in germany. And is still think Abraham beats him! Chavez Jr. would be even easier. The only guy at middlewei...
