Success of Froch-Kessler 2 could see Sauerland & Hearn make Abraham v Groves
By Boxing Muse: The business relationship formed between rival promoters Kalle Sauerland and Eddie Hearn in the organization of Froch V Kessler 2 could mean a possible match up of Armenian born German slugger ‘King’ Arthur Abraham and English young lion ‘Saint’ George Groves.
The historic rivalry between Germany and England under the rules of Queensbury plus the clash of these two boxer’s style surely leads to an exciting fight that would surely enthrall fans on both sides, if it was set in Germany or England.
Abraham with his peekaboo guard, hurtful punching power and brawling style meets Groves’ slick boxing, pot shot punching and tendency to like to brawl undoubtedly entwines to provide a great nights action.
Abraham is rumored to box next August 24 in Schwerin, Germany, the opponent is unknown as this present time (Not Robert Stieglitz). Groves is coming off an impressive victory against fairly capable opposition on the Froch v Kessler 2 undercard after a fifth round TKO of Noe Gonzalez Alcoba.
Although Groves has stated he would like to fight Carl Froch, it seems at this moment there are more appealing fights for Froch and this would seem to be the case.
A chance for Abraham to return, taking the scalp of an up and coming young English fighter with good pedigree and momentum behind him, after losing by a fourth round TKO to Stieglitz in March, due to referee stopping the bout as Abraham’s eye was closed, caused by a head-butt.
An opportunity of one of England’s most talented young boxer’s to catapult his name up on the world scene by beating an opponent the calibre of ‘King Arthur’ and attempt to do what Ward and Froch could not do, legitimately stop Abraham.
Germany versus England, the ‘Saint’ versus the ‘King’!
Abraham v Groves coming soon! (hopefully)
