Sauerland Feels The Abraham of Old Has Returned

By Alexander Pavlov

Promoters Wilfried and Kalle Sauerland believe that WBO European super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham (34-3, 27KOs) is back on track after winning a twelve round unanimous decision over Piotr Wilczewski (30-3) on Saturday night in Kiel, Germany.

"Arthur is back on the right path. Going into the locker room, he felt that he found himself. Wilczewski was very powerful, he has a great chin and an excellent manner of movement. So getting to him was very difficult. One has to feel that Arthur is already [prepared] at 80% capacity for a title fight. The other twenty [percent] we will [gain] in the next three to four months," Wilfried said.

Kalle says the next opponent for Arthur is sure to be the winner of the upcoming clash for the WBO super middleweight crown.

"The winner of bout between WBO champion Robert Stieglitz and George Groves will soon be required to meet with Arthur. I am very happy with the return of the old Abraham," Kalle said.
