Review: 2014-05-03, some good exchanges in the central part of the fight but it is not enough: Arthur Abraham vs Nikola Sjekloca gets two stars. Arthur Abraham entered this fight with a professional boxing record of 39-4-0 (28 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.4 super middleweight in the world, last year he was defeated by Robert Stieglitz during their rematch (=Abraham vs Stieglitz 2) but after that bout he won twice and he took revenge on Stieglitz in 2014 (=Stieglitz vs Abraham 3).
His opponent, Nikola Sjekloca, has an official record of 26-1-0 (8 knockouts) and he entered as the No.34 in the same weight class, he suffered his only defeat in 2013 when he faced Sakio Bika (WBC final eliminator: Bika vs Sjekloca), after that bout he has fought and won once; currently the #1 in this division is Andre Ward. Abraham vs Sjekloca is valid for the WBO super middleweight title (Abraham’s first defense), first world title shot for Sjekloca. Watch the video and rate this fight!
