Video: The Knockout Power of Arthur Abraham

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


Yesterday was Andre Ward Day here at Bad Left Hook, and while it's nice to hype up Ward, who is a heavy favorite on Saturday, he does have an opponent.

I won't fib, though: I think very little of Arthur Abraham as a boxing fan. That's just my personal opinion of the guy. I think he's whiny about "low blows," I think he was largely protected fighting in Germany, and I think he was overhyped against solid but far from amazing opposition for the most part. I just don't think he's all that good of a fighter. And the way Carl Froch manhandled him last time out sort of solidified that thought for good.

But he's got one thing that is very real: Knockout power in both his right and left hands. Let's take a special video look at some of Arthur Abraham's knockouts, which without question have counted among the nastiest in recent years.
