YEREVAN (ArmRadio)—German-Armenian professional boxer Arthur Abraham, who recently retained his WBO super middleweight belt, met with reporters in Yerevan on Thursday. The boxer confessed he had lost his sleep before regaining the title.
“Together with the WBO title I regained peace of mind,” he said. “I like to be a winner both in sports and in life,” he added.
The boxer will return to Germany in a few days and will continue his training.
“I had to box the fight with my left, as the fingers on my right hand were broken. Of course my opponent did not know about it in order not to get a psychological advantage,” Abraham said.
Arthur Abraham plans to continue his professional boxing career at least for the coming two years. After that he’ll enjoy life, but won’t return to Armenia.
“I developed as a sportsman in Germany, I have other businesses there. It will be hard to control everything from Armenia. However, I have always maintained ties with Armenia, as I love my Motherland,” he said.
Stressing the importance of his latest achievement, Arthur explained that keeping the title is the priority now. He has two fights ahead in August and December.
