“I’m sure they see that I’ve faced Abraham and Mora and would be a great name to add to the win column, but they picked the wrong guy. I’m in terrific shape and ready for battle.”
On March 29, 2008, Ayala faced Arthur Abraham for the IBF Middleweight Title in Germany, battling evenly over twelve rounds before being stopped.
