31 wins in 31 professional fights-that is the impressive record that Arthur Abraham brings with him into the new year. And to ensure the winning streak of the Super Six World Boxing Classic tournament leader carries on unabated in the new year, Sauerland Event general manager Chris Meyer has come up with a fantastic and novel surprise for coach Ulli Wegner’s pupil. He has seen to it personally that the first high pressure front of the new year – the ‘High Arthur’ – has been named after the Sauerland Team’s boxing champion. “We are firmly counting on Arthur exhilarating his fans again in the new year with his performances. Therefore, we wanted to make him smile with this gesture,” explained Meyer. The Institute for Meteorology at Berlin’s Freie University made it possible.
Weather forecasters allocate a name to every high and low pressure front. For several years now, it has been possible to give your own name to one of these weather phenomena, but you have got to be quick because each letter in the alphabet only gets allocated to one high pressure front. “That was a real surprise,” said the proud King Arthur. “It is the first time that I have swept across a country as a high pressure front–that’s a really nice idea!”
