Arthur Abraham (37-4, 28 KOs) feels comfortable before his upcoming fight on October 26! At today's public workout at the Famila Einkaufsland, the biggest mall in Oldenburg, the former world champion and opponent Giovanni De Carolis (20-4, 10 KOs) showed that there will be a fight at hand this upcoming Saturday.
"It's good to be back in Oldenburg", said WBO Intercontinental Champion Abraham, who will not only risk his belt but also his mandatory spot to WBO Super Middleweight World Champion Robert Stieglitz. "I had my initial world title defense at middleweight at the EWE ARENA in 2006. The people here are always excited about a good fight, which I want to offer them this weekend." With those fond memories on his mind, Abraham fired-off some quality combinations to the pads of his coach Ulli Wegner.
The people in attendance could also witness an intense workout by De Carolis. The man from Rome, Italy, who will enjoy a height advantage of nine centimeters towards Abraham, surely did not hold back today. With that kind of self-confidence, he might very well be a threat to Abraham, who wants to continue his unbeaten streak in Oldenburg.
