Just seen King Abraham vs Boudla on tv. It is the best version of AA I have seen, taking into account that Boudla is a simple brawler. Nice precise shots from the beginning, a lot of activity and good defence from the King. Surprisingly fine boxing from AA, he is way more fit, at this point. I think the King is adjusting to Smw. The outgunning he took from Froch earlier, warns me, though that Abraham can’t mix it with Kessler, Froch and Ward. I would like to see the King against Bute, at some point. There are some new british guys coming up in Smw, but its too early for them, right now.Posted December 17, 2012 6:06 pm
AA was a paper champ at MW? You are a retard, that’s for surePosted December 16, 2012 10:46 pm
X – Abraham was badly outclassed against Froch and Ward and even Dirrelll until his DQ which he likes to brag about because it’s the only decent punch he landed all fight – LOL! Abraham was a paper champ at middleweight as well. Whether he’s middleweight or super middleweight he’s just not very good. The S6 exposed him for what he was. And a similar tournamanet would have exposed Ottke and Beyer as well.Posted December 16, 2012 8:30 am
AA still is kind of unproven in SMW division because Taylor was damaged goods, and he lost all other fights in the Super6.
However, I think we have to acknowledge that stepping up a division to compete in this tournament of champions would have been quite a tough task for anyone.
There had been no warm up fights for AA in the SMW division.
Jan DK, he will milk it in Germany, he knows he is not good enought to fight any of the top fighters, obvious.Posted December 15, 2012 11:08 pm
How can the WBO allow such a joke fight to happen anyway? Boudlha was used as a warm up for Kessler on his comeback trail…..I guess it makes sense, they wouldn’t have called him up if he was any good, nothing the krauts like more than feeding corpses to their paper champions.Posted December 15, 2012 10:50 pm
What a sh..t comment. Did you see Miranda 1 and 2. Abraham then, as a MW, joined the super six SMW tournament and fought all the best outside of Germany…………….so whats you problem ………??Posted December 15, 2012 10:37 pm
Not a huge AA fan but love the fact he showed heart vs Miranda I, Froch and Ward. All true boxing fans respect this and was able to successfully continue his career.Posted December 15, 2012 10:18 pm

Andre Dirrell, you will be able to make petrol out him, time he fights again.Posted December 15, 2012 8:25 pm
More chance of the dinosaurs making a comeback regularly and they are fossils.Posted December 15, 2012 8:22 pm
Andre Dirrell, fights every 4 years, not newsPosted December 15, 2012 8:19 pm
Boudla Do It Again
Andre Dirrell should looking at the WBO belt now, hope for Dirrell/Abraham 2 soon, AD by TKOPosted December 15, 2012 8:04 pm
@ Firestarter. Think Kessler will annihilate Cleverly. He is way to loose in defense and despite Cleverly having the weight advantage over Kessler i really see Kessler being the stronger puncher. Add to that, Kessler’s technique is far superior and allthough Cleverly has some pace i see Kessler as faster. Another disadvantage for Cleverly is that he really likes to stand still in front of his opponent wearing his oppponent behind his guard. However, it would be rather unwise to use that tactic in front of Kessler. Kessler’s punches are thrown from all angles and with great power too. i don’t see much of a contest between those two. One thing Cleverly has though is heart, but again so does Kessler. Overall i think Kessler is another league than the good Nathan.Posted December 15, 2012 7:54 pm
It will be the 42 year old boxers v the 75 year old boxers in 2050.Posted December 15, 2012 7:30 pm
George Foreman v Evander Holyfield, Foreman 42 years old, he’s a grand dad, no chance, times have changed.Posted December 15, 2012 7:27 pm
keeps dancing away from glen like a little fairy …..Posted December 15, 2012 7:23 pm
groves is looking the oldman in the ring with glen …Posted December 15, 2012 7:22 pm
Groves needs to watch that punch, wearing himself out.Posted December 15, 2012 7:14 pm
kessler should call out the matrix ….Posted December 15, 2012 7:11 pm
Glen Jones is doing well for 43, doesn’t look old at all, Groves has to work.Posted December 15, 2012 7:08 pm
@Justin I don’t think Kessler will face AA, AA will keep meeting boxers for awhile and make some $$.
Bute – Froch could be a negotiation trick to get some “step-aside-money” or at least thats what I hope
Kessler could face a Nathan Clewerly, at a catchweight.Posted December 15, 2012 6:57 pm
Groves v Johnson
I hope doesn’t respect Johnson too much, throw combinations.Posted December 15, 2012 6:55 pm
Just learned that Kessler v Ward II and Kessler v Froch II will be extremely difficult to make in the near future. Apparantly Bute is claiming the rematch against Froch (how silly that may sound).
soliman vs sturnum should be a much better match up…..Posted December 15, 2012 6:45 pm
Boxtradamus, how do you do it, predicting these fights.Posted December 15, 2012 6:38 pm

He will do a Sturm.Posted December 15, 2012 6:27 pm
Bad fight in every way, AA was every round, without AA looking good.
Killing Moon The Soothsayer
Borefest….Abraham looked old…A rusty Kessler walked through Bouadla….Abraham couldn’t stop him on his own….That eye-injury didn’t look that bad to me…It was clear things didn’t go according to the plan so the bought ref stepped in…..I mean shouldn’t a doc have checked it what the hell!!Posted December 15, 2012 6:21 pm
Darn. Gerber lost. I really wanted him to go far–Sprott’s his nemisis. Oh well what did I expect from a guy named after baby food.Posted December 15, 2012 6:19 pm
Fight over. Abraham wins by TKO against a fighter not worthy of a championship fight. I feel sorry for the guys that paid to attend it.Posted December 15, 2012 6:18 pm
Up to now pretty boring fight with Abraham winning every round easily. This is more like a public training but a pro fight.Posted December 15, 2012 6:15 pm
Abraham will WIN.Posted December 15, 2012 3:36 pm
Wow Sprott got revenge on Gerber – well done Michael lad.Posted December 15, 2012 3:27 pm
