German Armenian boxer “King” Artur Abraham (76,2 kg / GER) won a twelve round unanimous decision over Robin Krasniqi (75,6 kg / GER) in a World Boxing Organization (WBO) Super Middleweight title eliminator.
Abraham will now challenge WBO Super Middleweight World Champion Gilberto Ramirez of Mexico for reigning the title.
Abraham, a former WBO middleweight and super middleweight world champion, lost his 168-pound championship last April to Ramirez in Las Vegas. He bounced back in July, when he knocked out Tim Robin Lihaung in eight rounds. He was set to face Martin Murray in a rematch in the fall, but withdrew with an injury.
