Wilczewski Taking Notes From Andre Ward's Abraham Win

By Luke Furman

Less than two weeks remain before Polish super middleweight Piotr Wilczewski (30-2, 10 KOs) enters the ring for the biggest fight of his career, which takes palce on March 31 in Kiel against Arthur Abraham (33-3, 27 KOs). The boxers will battle for the WBO's European title and the winner will move a step close to a title shot opportunity against full champion Robert Stieglitz.

Initially, it was believed the Abraham would return to the middleweight level after losing three fights in the Super Six Boxing Classic - against Carl Froch, Andre Ward and Andre Dirrell. Abraham changed his direction and made a decision to pursue Stieglitz's championship.

Aftr reviewing several tapes, the Polish boxer and his trainer Andrew Gmitruk are taking notes from Abraham's decision loss to Andre Ward (25-0, 13 KOs) from May 2011. They plan to use Ward's strategy and his tactics in the fight with Abraham. Gmitruk believes Ward's gameplan is the best blueprint to beating the former middleweight king.

Another loss for abraham i would put Degale in with him now and be more the comfortable he would wipe the floor with him.

Abraham was beaten pretty easily by Froch and Abraham, the blueprint is easy to follow.
