Arthur Abraham (44-5, 29 KOs) will face Tim-Robin Lihaug (15-1, 8 KOs) in a WBO International Super Middleweight title fight on Saturday night at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin.
Speaking at a final press-conference Abraham insisted he is fully on the fight at hand as he looks to atone for his World title defeat to Gilberto Ramirez and land another shot at World honours.
‘’Things did not go right for me last time, but now we look to the future,’’ he said. ‘’I am fully prepared for this fight and ready to do whatever it takes to win. First, I must defeat Lihaug and then I hope for another World title challenge.’’
Lihaug, however, maintained his belief that he would defeat Abraham and take his place at the top of the super middleweight division.
