Former world middleweight champion Arthur Abraham (33-3, 27KOs) returned last Saturday in Germany and stopped Argentine boxer Pablo Farias in five rounds. Abraham, who planned on going back to middleweight, will remain in the super middleweight division.

Abraham won the WBO's European super middleweight title last Saturday and wants to fight the winner of April's fight between WBO champion Robert Stieglitz and Mikkel Kessler. There rumors that Kessler may opt to chase a rematch with WBC/WBA champion Andre Ward.

A return date of March 31 is possible, says Abraham.

"I would like to do better, but this requires more work and further training. The mistakes that I made [against Farias], we are going to analyze and continue training so they are not repeated.

"It is quite possible [that I can face Stieglitz]. I think that our promoter [Sauerland Event] would organize this fight. Stiglitz also wants this fight, and so do I, of course. Such a fight would be a great event for Germany. So I hope that he could it could take place at the end of the year.[But] I would like to fight with the champ, so this would have to be in case he wins [against Kessler].

If Kessler wins, Abraham says a fight with his stablemate "is quite possible."

[QUOTE=Slyboots]Arthur Abraham sucks so much.[/QUOTE] You mean a former world champion who defended 10 times and made a few millions of his passion sucks ? How much does a loser with a stupid nickname like "slyboots" suck then ? I can't even imagine. [QUOTE=hyeduk]Only the one smart comment he...

Still wouldn't mind seeing Abraham fight Pavlik.

[QUOTE=BattlingNelson]I sense Sauerlands plan here: a: Abraham takes Mikkel Kessler's shot at Stieglitz. b: Kessler fights Ward I hope it isn't like that as I don't think it's in Kessler's best interest in fighting Ward after yet another long injury-related break. I'm in disagreement ...
