Super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham, who faces WBA champion Andre Ward on May 14 in the semi-finals of the Super Six tournament, is hoping that his stablemate Sebastian Sylvester retains the IBF middleweight title on Saturday. Sylvester holds Abraham's old title. He defense the belt against mandatory challenger Daniel Geale.
"Geale is a very strong opponent, but Sebastian will not slip up in front of his home crowd. He will win and my previous belt will remain in Germany," Abraham said.
Sylvester promised not to let anyone down in Germany, including Abraham. He wants to keep the IBF title in Germany.
"I just want to win. I will not disappoint my predecessors. Our belt will remain in Germany," Sylvester.
