Photos: Arthur Abraham Wins Tough Outing in Schwerin
Sport and Congress Center, Schwerin, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany - WBO #8 Namibian Willbeforce Shihepo (20-7, 15 KOs) produced one of his finest performances but came just a notch short of defeating ex-WBO super middleweight and ex-IBF middleweight king Arthur Abraham (37-4, 28 KOs) in a bid for a vacant WBO I/C title. The fading German Armenian won a close unanimous decision over twelve and remains a viable challenger for the crown, now owned by his bitter rival Robert Stieglitz. Shihepo, on the other hand, despite a game effort will have to come back to the regional circuit in search for a backdoor at the top.
The photos look much better than the fight...Post a Comment - View More User Comments (1)
