Arthur Abraham (33-3, 27 KOs) will take on Piotr Wilczewski (30-2, 10 KOs) at the Sparkassen-Arena in Kiel on March 31. Right here you can find a collection of quotes from the opening press conference for Abraham’s next bout.
“It’s all or nothing for Arthur,” promoter Kalle Sauerland said at today’s press conference. “He needs to beat Wilczewski to put himself back in a position to fight for the world title.”
Abraham, who celebrated a successful return in January when he knocked out Pablo Farias in the fifth round, knows it’s make or break. “I know there is a lot of pressure but I will make a good fight and beat Wilczewski,” he stated. “I have high goals. I want to be world champion again.”
Added coach Ulli Wegner: “We don’t fight any push-overs or easy opponents. It’s very simple, I expect a good fight from Arthur and a victory.”
Said Wilczewski, a former European Super-Middleweight Champion: “Im coming here to win. Arthur is a strong guy but I will defeat him.”
