Arthur Abraham Voted Boxer of The Year in Germany

YEREVAN (Armenpress)–IBF middleweight champion Arthur Abraham, who was born and raised in Yerevan, has been voted Germany’s "Boxer of the Year." BoxSport magazine conducted a poll among its readers and consulted a prominent jury to reach a verdict. "King Arthur" gained international fame by defeating top-ranked Colombian boxer Edison Miranda despite fighting with a broken jaw for the last eight rounds. "I feel flattered and proud," Abraham said of his top-place finish. "There are a lot of big names in the jury and it’s great to have the fans behind me. I will do all I can to defend the title next year." His coach, Ulli Wegner, also topped the coaching division for the fourth straight year. He has coached Abraham to three successful title defenses.
