Kentikian/Brähmer wrap-up

Strong TV ratings for Saturday’s Universum Champions Night event featuring world champions Susi Kentikian and Jürgen Brähmer. The live telecast of the Killer Queen’s bout against Nadia Raoui attracted 3.4 million viewers and a 23.2 share around midnight. A taped telecast of Brähmer against Mariano Plotinsky still had 2.49 million viewers and a 25.6% market share at nearly 1AM. Those matches, plus four more, can be seen in their entirety on www.youtube.com/UBPboxing. “We saw fantastic boxing fights in a sold-out arena,” said Universum promoter Klaus-Peter Kohl. “Certainly that’s a great thing though we could have sold more tickets in a bigger arena. Jürgen has become more and more stabilized and confident in his fights and we aren’t afraid of bigger fights for him. We now aim for a unification bout.”

“The female fight was a highlight as we had predicted. After the 8th round it was a draw on the scorecards and the ninth round went to Susi and the final round was close one. I’m trying to see it in an objective way and don’t want to see things through rose-colored glasses. I didn’t see either Susi or Nadia three points ahead but I don’t think that Nadia won the fight. We are thinking about a rematch and both fighters were very convinced about their performance.”

“About our future: we will not sell short and we will continue. We’ve just extended our contract with Adidas for another 3 years and they wouldn’t extend this deal if they don’t know how it will continue.” More quotes…

Abraham-Froch update

Wilfried Sauerland has rebuffed Mick Hennessys claims about a potential verbal agreement on the venue for the decisive Super Six World Boxing Classic showdown between King Arthur Abraham and Carl Froch. After losing his WBC Super-Middleweight Title to Mikkel Kessler in a epic clash on Saturday, the Cobra is due to take on tournament point leader Abraham in the third round. “Contrary to what Mick Hennessy stated after the fight on Saturday, there is no agreement – neither written nor verbal – about the fight venue,” Wilfried Sauerland said. “Some newspapers have wrongly suggested that I shook hands with Mick Hennessy on an agreement but that is not true. The tournament contracts imply that the Abraham-Froch fight should take place on European territory or wherever it makes the most commercial sense for everyone involved. I would prefer it to be on neutral territory. If this cannot be done, we should go for the best commercial option. We will get back to the negotiating table with Mick Hennessy and Team Froch to find a solution that suits either side. One must not forget the accumulated travel time – it would be highly unfair if Abraham, after flying all the way to the US, would have to travel to Nottingham while Froch only had to take a brief one-hour to Denmark, which even happened to be on a private jet. But I am sure we will work this out.”

Arreola-Adamek postfight presser

Angulo stops Julio in 11th

By Francisco Salazar and Felipe Leon at ringside

In an important clash of heavyweight contenders, Tomasz Adamek (41-1, 27 KOs) showed he belongs in the heavyweight division with a twelve round majority decision over Chris Arreola (28-2, 25 KOs) on Saturday night at the Citizens Business Bank Arena, Ontario, California. Arreola, who outweighed Adamek by 33 pounds, had difficulty connecting on the former light heavyweight and cruiserweight world champion, who was far busier early on. Both fighters landed big shots in the fourth round. Arreola’s size and strength became more of a factor as the fight progressed but Adamek changed his tactics and fought at his pace from rounds seven to nine. Arreola picked up the pressure in the tenth round. Both fighters landed good shots in the eleventh round. Adamek spent the final round pot-shotting a frustrated Arreola from the outside. Scores were 114-114, 115-113, 117-111.

In an intriguing clash of big-punching junior middleweights, WBO interim champion Alfredo Angulo (18-1, 15 KOs) KO’d Joel Julio (35-4, 31 KOs) in the eleventh round. Boxing from the outside, Julio outworked Angulo for the first third of the fight. Angulo’s pressure, however, began to break Julio down and he finished him with a big right hand in the eleventh. Time was 1:39.
