Abraham dissatisfied with purse, threatens immediate retirement

Coming off a KO loss to Robert Stieglitz and scheduled to face a little known opponent, former world champion Arthur Abraham is certainly looking at a pay cut. And he’s not happy about it. King Arthur told BILD, “If Sauerland Event will not agree with my attorney, I’m not boxing. Not August 24 and not later…I ​​don’t need to box anymore. I can retire immediately. You have to deal with an athlete fairly.”

If everything is resolved, Abraham is slated to face Willbeforce Shihepo on August 24 in Schwerin, Germany.
