Former undisputed middleweight champion Jermain Taylor (28-3-1, 17 KOs) takes on King Arthur Abraham (30-0, 24 KOs) on October 17 in the first Group Stage of the Super Six World Boxing Classic. Today Taylor and his coach Ozell Nelson arrived with their team in Germany. After leaving Houston and a stopover in Frankfurt they reached the airport Berlin-Tegel at 12:16, a little bit later than planned before. “I´m happy to be in Berlin again,” Taylor said in a first TV interview at the airport. “It´s an amazing city. I hope to have a little bit time to see more of it. I know Arthur is fighting in his hometown on the 17. I bet at the o2 World he is going to have the crowd behind him. But my preparation was very good and I´m feeling very well. I will be ready for him and I expect a very tough fight.” On Friday the 31-year old super middleweight will do his first trainings session in the capital of Germany. Arthur Abraham, who completes his training camp in Zinnowitz at the Baltic Sea, will be in Berlin from Monday.
