Arthur Abraham flys back home


Arthur Abraham

Arthur Abraham has closed his Palm Springs camp and will head back to his home city of Berlin, Germany.

Following the withdrawal of Andre Dirrell from their March 6th date with a back injury, the Armenian-born puncher will head home for a couple of weeks before returning back to America nearer their March 27th date.

The rescheduled fight will be held at the Joe Louis stadium, which is only around 40 miles or so from Andre Dirrell's home town of Flint Michigan.

Many believe that Dirrell can beat Arthur Abraham and the postponement has handed the former Bronze medal winning Olympian a nice home-town advantage.

Kalle Saulerland will likely be unhappy with this, given that his other fighter in the Super Six tourney, Mikkel Kessler was not given a fair shake by the American referee in the loss on to cuts to Andre Ward.

Ward will have his second fight on the trot in his hometown when he faces Allan green during his second phase of the Super Six tournament.
