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.
