With full intention to get back on track, Froch explained: “You know Arthur Abraham can’t beat me. Really, he can’t beat me.”

A similar story to Froch, Abraham got off to a winning start defeating Jermain Taylor in a tense twelfth round knock out in his first fight then going onto suffer defeat against Andre Dirrell after being disqualified for hitting him whilst he was down in the eleventh round. The favourite to win this fight, Abraham is currently ranked 14th ‘Best Boxer in the World’ according to Ring magazine..
Taking place at the Hartwall Areena, Helsinki, the fight is part of the established and acclaimed ‘Super Six Tournament’ the winner of this fight goes onto fight either Andre Ward or Andre Dirrell in the final in summer 2011.
