On Saturday night at the Baden Arena in the city of Offenburg, Germany, Pablo Farias (19-1, 11 KOs) will get the toughest test of his career against former middleweight world champion Arthur Abraham (32-3, 26 KOs). The fight is going to leave the winner with a high WBO ranking at super middleweight. Farias knows the fight is going to be tough, and dangerous, but he plans to leave everything in the ring.
"I've trained like never before. I know that Abraham is a great fighter, but who cares. I came to win. The dream of my life is to be world champion. And for that I want to beat the best. I know that Abraham is tough and I am aware of the hardships that involve me being an outside. But if I reach the top level, these are the challenges that I'll face. I will leave everything in the ring. I'm arriving with a single goal - victory," Farias said.
"I know Abraham's capacity, power and technical quality. He wasn't the world champion for such a long time for nothing. But I have every confidence. I will rely on my own skills and I'm ready for such a challenge. Abraham is very strong, a real gladiator and has great experience. It surely will be a very tough fight. But who cares, it will not be easy for him."
