More on the Alexander Abraham story

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Alexander Abraham is denying the story through Team Sauerland, but fact remains he was arrested and had to make bail. Tim Smith has also reported the story on ESPN.com, so I don't know how seriously to take the Abraham camp on this one. Probably with at least a giant grain of salt.

There is a legit $100,000 fine being levied against Arthur Abraham, and if it's not paid, Arthur faces a suspension in the States. This whole situation is just utterly stupid and shameful. Let's hope it doesn't mess up Arthur's career, because all he did last night was his job.

We'll have more on last night's fights later tonight with a full recap of all the action.

As a side note, how about this one? ESPN's Dan Rafael reported in his Insider blog (which is always worth the money, for the record) that Nate Campbell told him that terms have been agreed to for a fight with Joan Guzman...on September 13th on Showtime. That's right -- the exact same date as Casamayor-Marquez.

Come on, guys.
