Arthur Abraham sets Berlin speed record

But not in a good way. Abraham was pulled over in his Ferrari doing 231 km/h (about 144 mph) in a zone where the speed limit was 80 km/h (about 50 mph). Local authorities say that's the fastest speed anyone's been pulled over for on that highway. Due to the egregious nature of the offense, Abraham may lose his driver's license for three months. The former middleweight titlist said he was running late for an awards ceremony where he was being honored (although, apparently, the ceremony was in Armenia).

Super Six dream has officially become a nightmare

Super Six tourney has turned out to be more of a hassle than a success.

Froch vs Abraham: Which one has to rebound once more?

What happens when you put two world class fighters in a ring together, add a little explosiveness and just touch of , "I cannot lose this fight" mentality? What you get is the upcoming Carl Froch-Arthur Abraham bout. Each combatant is coming off of a loss that many in the boxing world thought that they would win. Froch ventured to Denmark to face Mikkel Kessler. Kessler was the odds on favorite heading into Showtime’s Super Six Tournament, but was upset in round one by now tourney favorite, Andre Ward. Some viewed the Ward fight as a bout that showed certain limitations for Kessler. Besides suffering numerous headbutts, Kessler seemed to be outhustled and lost a technical decision. Froch had dealt Andre Dirrell a loss in their first round fight. The fight was, to be honest, hard to watch.

Allegations of Dirrell Cheating Are Naive and Unwarranted

by Dafydd Thomas of The Boxing Tribune Experienced writer and analyst, T.K. Stewart, has been the first to openly criticize Andre Dirrell following his disqualification victory over Arthur Abraham at the weekend, accusing Dirrell of 'mock pain and agony' as he was laid flat on the canvas following a cheap shot from Arthur Abraham in Detroit. Stewart complains that Dirrell faked injury to claim his first victory in the Super 6 Boxing Classic so he can continue on in Showtime's 168-pound tournament. As always, Arthur Abraham's Armenian fan club has used this to back their poorly-thought out argument on how their guy was poorly treated by Michigan officials, and how he was robbed of a 32nd career victory. Dirrell was clearly ahead at this point in the fight and looked relatively comfortable, if slightly tired, as he hopped on his motor scooter and stayed well clear of Abraham, who stalked him looking for another dramatic knockout. The momentum was hardly with Abraham, even though he should have been awarded a knockdown in the tenth. Read more...

Felix Sturm vs. Khoren Gevor

According to Fightnews, Felix Sturm and Khoren Gevor will meet for Sturm's title on July 11th. This is a very live opponent for Sturm. Gevor hung tough with Arthur Abraham until he got knocked out, and dominated Amin Asikaiken, who was a top 10 middleweight who has beaten Sebastian Sylvester. Don't give Universum too much credit though - Gevor is also a Universum fighter. This may have been their decision to let Sturm sink or swim, but even if Sturm loses, the belt will stay in the family.
