Boxing: Abraham may be facing ‘Black Mamba’ in upcoming title fight


Germany-based Armenian professional boxer Arthur Abraham is likely to compete against Willbeforce ‘The Black Mamba’ Shihepo from Namibia in his next fight later this summer.

The bout is due in Schwerin, Germany, on August 24, according to information published on the 33-year-old Armenian boxer’s official website.

Abraham said: “I train every day to again be the champ. Everything else is unimportant. My fans want to see only victory.”

In his latest appearance in the ring in March Abraham (36-4, 28 KOs) lost to former WBO champion Robert Stieglitz after suffering an unfortunate injury in the rematch of their first fight from last summer in which the Armenian had prevailed.
