Abraham Was Urged To See a Psychologist By Wegner

By Raphael Kyc

Ulli Wegner, the coach of former champion Arthur Abraham (31-2, 25 KOs), has admitted recently that he urged his boxer take gain an advantage in the ring by getting psychological support. According to the German coach, 'King Arthur' has the right skills to be a world class boxer, but needs work on his psyche.

"After the fight with Carl Froch, I persuaded Arthur to go to a psychologist, but he refused. Abraham, on the day of the fight with Froch, was in excellent physical shape, but he broke down mentally. He can't afford to have that happen a second time," Wegner said.

Abraham will return to the ring on Ferbuary 12 in Mulheim, Germany, and his opponent will be Croatian boxer Stjepan Bozic.

[QUOTE=Spray_resistant;10069576]dead serious, they could easily have had another young 168 prospect or crazy idea.......Bute instead of him.[/QUOTE] Bute instead of Dirrell or Ward, but not AA. AA actually earned it. The other 2 beat Shelby Pudwill and ran against Curtis…

[QUOTE=Spray_resistant;10068554]AA was never really that good and no way deserved to be in this tourney or considered among the best at 168 ever.[/QUOTE] He'd kick your sorry ass and you'd watch him do it homo.
