On January 9, the RA Ministry of Diaspora hosted a presser with WBO super middeweight world boxing champion Arthur Abraham. The RA Minister of Diaspora, Hranush Hakobyan, introduced the modest, nationalist boxer who has great human attributes and whom the Armenian people love and respect. The minister underlined the human attributes through which Arthur shows how much he loves and how connected he is to his country and people.
“Arthur has won 80 times in the ring as Germany’s representative and always lets everyone know about his victory by waving the tricolor Armenian flag. After each duel, Arthur Abraham visits the homeland, receives the strength from the native land and leaves with more energy and determination to win his next duels,” the minister mentioned. Arthur loves and is devoted to his parents and family and especially respects his beloved coach, Uli Wagner.
According to Minister Hranush Hakobyan, Arthur Abraham sets a wonderful example for Diaspora Armenian youth with his lifestyle, mindset and line of conduct. Arthur Abraham has become self-established in his chosen profession, has preserved his national identity, his unbreakable ties with the homeland and has remained the bearer and protector of the Armenian nation’s system of values while being recognized and appreciated. Abraham also carries out benevolent acts. His achievements fill all Armenians with pride and help reinforce the national awareness among Armenian youth.
