Abraham hopes to unify super-middleweight division

Arthur Abraham

WBO super-middleweight champion Arthur Abraham (43-4) faces a tough test on Saturday against Martin Murray and is hoping a victory can take him a step closer to unifying the super-middleweight division.

However, Abraham is not discounting the threat Murray poses. “At this stage of my career, I don’t want to fight any easy opponents. I need fights that will motivate me, and that is why we chose Murray.

“He has challenged for world titles before and against [Felix] Sturm, [Sergio] Martinez and especially [Gennady] Golovkin he has already boxed three world-class opponents.

“I know this is a dangerous fight and that has given me the motivation I need.”

With James DeGale and Badou Jack also holding belts in the division unification will be a tough task for any of the champions but an exciting prospect for boxing fans.
