Ward-Abraham: Arthur Counting on The Armenian Fans

King Arthur Abraham is convinced that the huge Armenian community in California will lift him to victory in his Super Six World Boxing Classic semi-final bout on May 14. The 31-year-old (32-2, 26 KOs), who takes on undefeated WBA Super-Middleweight Champion Andre Ward (23-0, 13 KOs) at The Home Depot Center, is currently shaping up on Usedom, a small German island in the Baltic Sea. Last week, SHOWTIME´s Fight Camp 360 crew caught up with the former tournament point leader in his training camp

“I am looking forward to returning to America and clinch a big victory on May 14,” King Arthur said. “Los Angeles has a huge Armenian community and I intend to put on a great fight for my loyal fans. Their passionate support really means a lot to me. It will give me additional motivation. Ward is a strong fighter but with the help of my countrymen I will defeat him.”

[QUOTE=Faerun;10400919]That won't save him. While a Ward shutout victory remains the most likely outcome I can see Abraham retireing on his stool because he's gonna get dominated like never before (and Dirrel and Froch already dominated him but Ward'll destroy…

LA is a better Home crowd then Germany you actually have the Armenians there. I hope Abraham listens to his coach this time around and throws some punches.
