King Arthur Abraham (32-3, 26 KOs) will make his hotly-anticipated comeback on January 14 when he takes on Argentina΄s Pablo Oscar Natalio Farias in Offenburg, Germany.
We are looking forward to seeing Arthur back in the ring, Team Sauerland General Manager Chris Meyer said. We have found a tough opponent for him. The fight against Farias will be no walk in the park.
It will be Abraham΄s first fight since losing to WBA Super-Middleweight Champion Andre Ward in the semi-finals of the Super Six World Boxing Classic.
I want to put on a good fight for my fans, King Arthur said. Of course I have learned from my defeats. But now is the time to look ahead and get ready to fight again. I want to win back the hearts of my fans, and in order to do so, I need a convincing victory. January 14 will be the start of something new for me. I want to begin the new year with an exciting victory and then set my sights on a world title again.
Farias (19-1, 11 KOs) has never been beaten by knockout or decision. His only loss was a disqualification when he punched after the break-command.
We have analysed him on tape, coach Ulli Wegner said. He΄s a tough guy with a lot of fighting spirit. He will be difficult to beat. But Arthur knows that he needs to put on a convincing performance. It will be an interesting encounter. The fight will be contested above the middleweight limit.
