Wilczewski, Gmitruk Expect No Surprises From Abraham

By Luke Furman

Trainer Andrzej Gmitruk, and former EBU super middleweight champion Piotr Wilczewski (30-2, 10 KOs) are not expecting any surprises from Arthur Abraham (33-3, 27 KOs) on Saturday night in Kiel. The WBO's European title at 168-pounds will be on the line. He expect Abraham to come forward and attempt to impose his will with power punches and physical strength.

"Piotr Wilczewski is a very experienced fighter. In the fight with [James] DeGale, he showed what he can do. Abraham is a tough fighter, but during the "Super Six" his weaknesses were exposed. For Abraham, his back will be against the wall in this fight. He can not afford to fail," Gmitruk said.

"He will be very difficult challenge. You could look for a strategy in his loss to Andre Ward, but the problem is that Piotr moves quite differently and he is not Andre Ward. You have to find another way. Piotr is very well prepared, he it is extremely motivated and he's going to Kiel to win."

For his part, Wilczewski said - "I know what Abraham is going to do. I'm very well prepared for this fight. I know exactly what to expect from Abraham. There will not be any surprises."
