Is it just me or is Abraham dressed 2 the 9′s when ever he fights

Sadly but I belive Arthur Abraham have done his best days as a super middleweight contender. He was a major force in the middleweight division and defended his IBF world middleweight title 10 times but as a Super middleweight his natural sice have not been to his advantage and his performances in his latest fights have not been of A class I’m afraid.
I hope I’m wrong as Arthur Abraham have made many great fights in his career to look back at but mabey he just not have what it takes any longer to become world champion again.

And again, he was a fighter who wanted to fight the best back in his middleweight days but no one wanted to take his challanges (especally Felix Sturm who is one of the BIGGEST/WORST runner of all title holders in boxing history).

Limited capabilities? He no elite top dog but both these guys r solid….Ward, Froch, Kessler pretty strong competition? These guys would expose most, especially a former middleweight. I’m looking 4ward 2 this rubber match.

The Super Six exposed the limits of Abraham’s abilities. He’s tough, willing, and, at 160, had above-average power. At 168 he, and Stieglitz for that matter, are second-tier. The title belt is merely window dressing for what is a high quality, but certainly not world championship-level, fight. Expect a Stieglitz win by clear decision.

Yes, Pavlik for sure ducked AA @ 160. If I remember correctly, Pav’s team said the money wasn’t good enough. I think he fought BHOP shortly after that. Maybe Leow forseen Pav’s potential downfall, and said lets cash-in now and fight BHOP. Anyone with a half a brain knows that drinking beer and fighting at this high of a level DONT mix.

Abraham is 34 now and has been in some wars. No, even @160, he would not be a problem for GGG now. But he would still be a top 10 fighter at MW. His weight problems could have been managed by behaving like a pro: diet, training, live for the sports. It’s too late now for him.
GGG should stay at 160 lbs and unify. He could move up after that, but first things first. About Ward vs. GGG @168: Ward is an extremely slick and intelligent boxer who does not have to and should not rely on dirty tricks (get rid of them, Andre!). I’d put my money on Ward, because I don’t how GGG’s power translates to SMW. He might run into the same problems as Abraham: his power is devastating at 160, but the guys at 168 can take his shots. Would be an interesting fight, though.

I just don’t know who will win this one.

It was said repeatedly that AA couldn’t make 160 anymore, as it was taxing his body too much to do so. AA shined for a while, because he was coupling his B level skills with sucessfully playing the weight game. @ 168 he only has his B level skills. On a good note, though he tarnished his rep @ 168, im sure he has made a lot of money there.

Don’t forget, in the first fight Abraham outclassed Stieglitz and won by points. In the second fight, Stieglitz put pressure on Abraham, who was stopped by TKO through a eye cut. It will be an interesting fight, and both are no bums. Abraham ruled middleweight, Pavlik dodged him. And never forget the fight Abraham one despite a jaw broken in two places.

Stieglitz will retire Abraham. Abraham’s big mistake was moving up to 168 lbs. That destroyed his career.

Who the hell cares about James? This boxing. All James throws a ball through a hoop.

“Lebron James looses a game”. How did he loosen that game? Did he unscrew the backboard? Maybe he pulled up some flooring nails? How do these basic literacy mistakes get made and published? The spelling is ‘lose’ or ‘loses’. As in Ivan Drago saying to Rocky “you will lose”. Sheesh.
