Arthur Abraham meets Jimmy Cliff

King Arthur Abraham, Alexander Frenkel, Francesco Pianeta and First Lady Cecilia Braekhus enjoyed a special break from their high-altitude training camp in Switzerland when they met Jimmy Cliff on Sunday. Together with coach Ulli Wegner, they attended the reggae legend´s concert in Samnaun. Cliff revealed he was a big fan of King Arthur and said he would love to see a fight.. “That is a great honour for me,” the IBF middleweight champion replied. “He is a living legend and it makes me very proud to have such a famous fan.” Abraham immediately invited his new friend to attend his next fight against Edison Miranda in the US on June 21.

Cliff stated he was a big fan of boxing. “I have a lot of respect for boxers. They do have a lot of things in common with musicians. We both perform in front of thousands of people. They prepare very hard in practice, as do we in the sound studios. And when we´re on stage, we both have to deliver.”

After pleasing the crowd with his famous songs, Cliff left the slopes to the skiers – and Team Sauerland to their training camp duty. Just like his team-mates, King Arthur enjoyed the concert. “It was a great pleasure to meet him and hear his songs. It was a nice change from all the hard practice.”
