Arthur Abraham - Howard Schatz
The reports coming out of Arthur Abraham’s camp indicate that the former IBF middleweight champion is in the best shape of his career. Abraham is very aware, that his May 14 showdown with WBC super middleweight champion Andre Ward, is his last chance to reclaim some of his lost luster. The odds makers are laying 5 to 1 that the former king will lose for the third time in his last four fights. A loss will also be the end of Abraham’s dream of winning the Super Six World Boxing Classic.

  Showing a calm determination, Abraham answered six questions regarding his past, future, and what he has in store for Andre Ward.

The fight against Carl Froch last November was very disappointing. Did you have an off night against Froch?  

Yes, I had a very, very bad night. But I do not think about it any more. I have analyzed it and learned my lesson. 2010 was a very bad year for me. 2011 started with a win and it will be much, much better.

Some have been speculating about where your confidence might be after the recent losses. Are you having any sense of doubt?

I am even more confident now.
Andre Ward’s chameleon like style has left his opponents befuddled and bewildered. Do you know why this is?
He is technically very good and very fast and he fights dirty sometimes.
You mentioned that Ward fights dirty sometimes. Does that mean that you think Ward is a dirty fighter?


Are you planning to go to war with Ward immediately this Saturday night?  

I have to - otherwise I have no chance of winning!  

Tell me what you think is going to happen on May 14?  

I will clinch a big victory for my fans, my team and myself!

Will Arthur Abraham deliver on May 14? We shall see. .
