Arthur Abraham vs. Willbeforce Shihepo back on again

Former two-division world champion Arthur Abraham’s August 24 bout against WBO #7 super middleweight Willbeforce Shihepo (20-6, 15 KOs) is back on again at the Sport- Und Kongresshalle in Schwerin, Germany. Abraham (36-4, 28 KOs) was unhappy about his purse for this bout and had threatened to retire, but things have now been worked out with promoter Sauerland Event and Abraham is back onboard. In the main event, former world light heavyweight champion and local hero Jurgen Braehmer (40-2, 31 KOs) defends his Euro belt against Stefano Abatangelo (17-2-1, 6 KOs).
