King Arthur Abraham, Mahir Oral, Sebastian Sylvester, Frank Shabani and Alexander Frenkel all participated in a public workout in Berlin´s Axel-Springer Passage today. On Saturday, they will display their talents in the Max-Schmeling-Halle. “I am in great shape,” King Arthur told reporters. “I really look forward to fighting in Berlin. It will be a tough night for Mahir Oral.”
Abraham did some skipping exercises before proving his punching power when working the pads with Ulli Wegner. “I want to please my hometown fans on Saturday,” the undefeated IBF Middleweight Champion (29-0, 23 KOs) added. Oral (25-1, 10 KOs) also looked very confident. “If I make the most of my advantage in height and reach, everything will be possible,” he said.
Meanwhile, IBF International Middleweight Champion Sebastian Sylvester (30-3, 15 KOs) is preparing for a tough fight. He will take on Lajuan Simon (21-1, 12 KOs), who comes off a points loss against King Arthur. “The winner will be the number 2 in the IBF rankings. That is a great opportunity,” the Hurricane said. “I will take care of business on Saturday.” Sylvester looked strong when working out with coach Karsten Rower today.
Alexander Frenkel and Frank Shabani also participated in the workout. Frenkel (17-0, 13 KOs) will be looking for the 18th win in as many fights when he takes on Argentina´s Rodolfo De Dominicis (15-1, 11 KOs). Frank Shabani (17-0, 6 KOs), who is coached by Otto Ramin, will clash with Leonard Bundu (18-0, 6 KOs) for the EU welterweight title.
