In front of an excitable crowd and a throng of cameras, hometown hero “King” Arthur Abraham (30-0, 24 KOs) of Berlin, weighed in at the division limit 168 pounds (76.2 kg). His opponent, Jermain “Bad Intentions” Taylor (28-3-1, 17 KOs) of Little Rock, Ark., who had more than 20 American fans on hand, weighed in at 166 ¼ pounds (75.4 kg). Abraham and Taylor are ready to fight before what is expected to be a sellout crowd of 14,000+ at the famed o2 World Arena in Berlin. The clash of former middleweight world champions will kick-off the Super Six World Boxing Classic, Saturday, Oct. 17 on SHOWTIME (8 p.m. ET/PT). Abraham vs. Taylor will air on a delay and be followed immediately by the live telecast of Carl “The Cobra” Froch vs. Andre “The Matrix” Dirrell.
