Juergen Braehmer Vs Stefano Abetangelo.
European Light Heavyweight Title.
Arthur Abraham Vs Wilberforce Shihepo.
Gilberto Ramirez Sanchez Vs Julio Cesar Garcia
Kubrat Pulev Vs Tony Thompson.
Four very good fights. Braehmer has 31 KOs from his 40 wins, started off as a supper middle before deciding to step up. I see him winning with another KO tonight by the 6th round.
Arthur Abraham has his comeback fight tonight after losing his WBO title to Stieglitz in his last fight. Shihepo is a difficult fighter to come back against and Abraham will need to be on top of his game to win. I think he will.
The phenomenal rise of Ramirez Sanchez continues. 25 fights, 25 wins, 20 KOs. This lad is only 22 and is going to be a huge, huge star IMO. A step up in class for him tonight, but I see another KO win for him.
The most interesting fight of the night for me is Pulev Vs Thompson. Pulev is one of the best HWs outside of the Klitschkos IMO and is a very tough cookie, having said that Thompson has only been beaten by Wlad and has a huge heart as shown in his last fight Vs Price when he was almost KO'd at the beginning of the fight before coming back to win by stoppage. This fight is "unofficially" being billed as an eliminator for a shot at Wladimir, however I think the winner of this will fight the winner of Haye Vs Fury in an official eliminator. It is very close to call this fight, I think I can see Thompson winning on points, but we will tell.
I wish them all well...
