Thatīs why three documentarians have been keeping a close eye on the duo ever since January. They are in the middle of producing an insightful 90-minute documentary about the champion and his mentor. A new trailer, which provides an incredible behind-the-scenes look, has just been released..
Nina Pourlak, Sebastian Lempe and Juri von Krause have watched countless hours of Abrahamīs practice, joined him during the crucial days before the third-round TKO victory over Sebastien Demers and even spent five days in his home country Armenia. "We have witnessed many very special moments," Pourlak stated. "Arthur and Ulli are two great persons and to catch their work on camera has really been fascinating."
Pourlak and her team have already joined King Arthur for the preparation of his second mandatory title defence, an August 18 meeting with countryman Khoren Gevor. "Having been to Armenia we know how much there will be at stake for Arthur in this fight," added Pourlak. "And itīs not just that: Itīs also the battle between coaching greats Ulli Wegner and Fritz Sdunek."
The fight will take place in Berlinīs famous Max-Schmeling-Halle.
