Hassan N'Dam Targets Olympic Run; Abraham vs. Lihuang Update

By Per Ake Persson

While most established pros are opposed to fighting in the Olympics, there are two stars that will take the chance to qualify. One is former WBO middleweight champ Hassan N´Dam, who represented Cameroon in the 2004 Olympics but is now a French citizen. He told media in France he will take part in a tournament in Venezuela July 3 in order to qualify.

Former world champion Amir Khan told press in Karachi, Pakistan, he is interested in participating - if a deal could be reached with his promoter and the rules allowed it - he would like to try and qualify representing Pakistan. Khan fought in the 04 Olympics but then represented the UK.

The super middleweight fight between Arthur Abraham (44-5) and Tim-Robin Lihaug (15-1) is now ”upgraded” to a WBO International fight. At a press conference in Berlin trainer Ulli Wegner and promoter Kalle Sauerland made it clear that this was a last chance for Abraham.

Sauerland´s former First Lady, Cecilia Braekhus, who trained with Abraham for a long time, told Norwegian press she feels Abraham is tired and worn from a long career and ready for the taking.
