Here are the main quotes from today’s kick-off press conference ahead of the fight between WBO Super-Middleweight World Champion Arthur Abraham and Nikola Sjekloca on May 3 at the Velodrom Berlin, Germany, which will host its first ever world title fight.

Nikola Sjekloca: "I am going to dethrone the 'King' Arthur and take his title away. Last year, I had a competitive fight against Sakio Bika, who went on to win the WBC Belt. Now I want to win the WBO Title and unify against Bika in a rematch. I do not underestimate Abraham as I am following his career since he had his first world championship fight. I studied his style in detail and know how to beat him."

Arthur Abraham: "To study my style by watching videos is one thing, to step into the ring against me the other. I am leaving for training camp tomorrow morning. I know for a fact that my coach Ulli Wegner will come up with the right game plan for me to be victorious on May 3. I am really looking forward to defend the WBO World Championship in my hometown of Berlin."

Tickets for the fight night at the Velodrom Berlin, Germany are available via www.eventim.de .

[QUOTE=Box-Office]If that is the case id say that was not a smart move. He could have accepted peanuts for short term and may be win the belt and make six figures in the long run. Oh well.[/QUOTE] True, but the guy is pretty old, and while he does have ambition and wants to win a belt before h...

[QUOTE=Black Barty]Sjekloca is getting paid peanuts for this fight. I know this for a fact because Sauerland initially offered the title shot to a compatriot of mine, a total no name guy with a padded record who would normally jump at a chance like this, but even he said the money was ridiculo...

[QUOTE=porknchili]God damn... Sjekloca has some BIG F**king hands!:wtf1:[/QUOTE] That may be, but Arthur's is obviously at a different angle. At least, it should be obvious...
