Arthur Abraham vs Chris Eubank Jr for the IBO title on July 15 in London

AA vs Eubank 15.7.2017

It’s official! Arthur Abraham (46-5, 30 KOs) will challenge Chris Eubank Jr (24-1, 19 KOs) for the IBO World Super Middleweight Championship on July 15 at the SSE Arena, Wembley in London, live on ITV Box Office in the UK.

‘King’ Arthur, a former two-weight World ruler, will have the opportunity to claim World honours for a fourth time following reigns at 160 and 168 pounds.

Although fighting for the first time on UK soil, the German veteran is no stranger to British boxers having previously shared the ring with Carl Froch, Paul Smith and Martin Murray in a series of memorable World title fights.

Eubank Jr, the son of the legendary British fighter Chris Eubank, will be making the first defence of the IBO super middleweight strap he claimed with a tenth-round technical knockout victory over Australia’s Renold Quinlan in February.

Speaking at a press conference today in London, Abraham said: ‘’I’m very happy to have the opportunity to fight here in England. The UK boxing fans are among the best in the World, and I look forward to putting on a great show on July 15.

‘’I will train hard with my coach Ulli Wegner. I will make sure I’m in top shape and ready to secure a great victory. I know Chris Eubank Jr is a good fighter, like his father, and I’m expecting a tough fight, but I’m confident I will beat him!’’

‘’Arthur Abraham has my respect,’’ said Eubank Jr. ‘’He has done what he’s done in his career, but now it’s my time. I have been preparing my whole life to fight the best, and now, I have the opportunity to fight one of the top super middleweights in the World, and to really make my mark on the division.

‘’Abraham is a strong, come forward fighter, but he’s one-dimensional. He’s very good in that one dimension, but a one-dimensional fighter cannot beat me. I see a lot of holes in his game and I’m going to exploit those holes ruthlessly.’’

Eubank Jr was joined by his father Chris Eubank, the former WBO middleweight and super middleweight World Champion, who said: ‘’Arthur Abraham is a great warrior and I’m sure the boxing fraternity will say it’s a tough fight, but I don’t think it’s a tough fight. I think he’s in danger like my son’s previous opponents. But talk is cheap and I will step back now and let him do what he does.’’

Abraham and Eubank Jr will come face-to-face again at a press conference tomorrow at the Titanic Hotel in Berlin ahead of their IBO World title clash.

Gutknecht vs. Groves: Der Sieger wird den Weltmeister fordern!

DSC06163  DSC04305.JPG

Gutknecht vs. Groves, am 18. November 2016 in der SSE Arena, Wembley / London

WBA Interkontinentaler Titel im Supermittelgewicht!

Der Sieger wird den Weltmeister fordern!

Nach seiner beeindruckenden Siegesserie, in der er zuletzt Martin Murray beiseite geschoben hat, will Hammerschmied George Groves zeigen, dass er auch gegen den aus Deutschland kommenden und respektierten, zweifachen WM-Herausforderer Eduard Gutknecht siegen kann! Das wird mit Sicherheit ein „mach es oder lass es“ Wettkampf für beide Boxer.

Eduard „Energy Eddy“ Gutknecht will nach seinem Ausflug ins Halbschwergewicht, endlich in seiner angestammten Gewichtsklasse, dem Supermittelgewicht, erneut auf WM Kurs gehen! Für Eduard Gutknecht stellt sich die dritte WM-Herausforderung in Aussicht und er ist voller Energie, um sich dieser Aufgabe zu stellen!

Dieser wichtige Entscheidungs-Kampf wird live und exklusiv im terrestrischen Fernsehen in Großbritannien auf Chanel 5 ausgestrahlt.

Für den beliebten und ehemaligen dreifach WM-Herausforderer George Groves, der einige der größten Kämpfe in der britischen Boxgeschichte abgeliefert hat, ist dieser Kampf ein echter Prüfstein! Nach 3 tollen Siegen ist der 28 Jährige zurück in die WM-Anwartschaft katapultiert worden.

Im Supermittelgewicht, eine derzeit der „heißesten“ Gewichtsklassen, kann sich der Sieger vom 18. November 2016, auf eine Fülle von Angeboten für spannende Kämpfe und potenzielle Titel im Jahr 2017 freuen, während der Verlierer sich ganz neu orientieren muss.

Eduard „Energy Eddy“ Gutknecht vs. Hammerschmied George Groves am 18. November 2016 in der SSE Arena Wembley, London wird ein echtes Highlight für das Boxen.

Stimmen zum Kampf:

George Groves: Ich bin wirklich sehr glücklich diesen Kampf zu verkünden und sehr aufgeregt die „Schlagzeile“ von Channel 5 zu sein. Ich habe Glück gehabt in meiner bisherigen Boxer Laufbahn fast alles erlebt zu haben, was dieser Sport zu bieten hat, aber live in dem terrestrischen Fernsehen, stand noch ganz oben auf meiner Liste. Das Arbeiten mit Shane und dem McGuigan Team war fantastisch und hat mir den Unterschied gezeigt, was das trainieren mit einem Gewinner Team ausmachen kann. Ich glaube das meine Performance dieses Jahr, im speziellen der Sieg über Martin Murray, jedem gezeigt hat, dass ich eine ernsthafte Gewalt in der Supermittelgewichtsszene bin. Ich brauche eigentlich nicht zu betonen, dass ich entschlossen bin wieder herauszufordern und diesmal wird es mir gelingen der Weltmeister zu werden.

Eduard Gutknecht: Ich werde am 18. November mit meinem Wiking Boxteam nach London kommen um es zu erobern! Ich bin mit Energie aufgeladen und werde den Sieger George Groves zum Verlierer machen. Ich kann mich voll auf den Kampf konzentrieren und brauche mir keine Pfunde anfuttern. Supermittelgewicht ist meine Gewichtsklasse und ich werde zeigen wer der Beste ist. Die Fans werden einen Kampf sehen und wenn es sein muss, gehe ich durch die Hölle um die Leute dann auf meiner Seite zu wissen.

Shane Mc Guigan: Diesen Kampf muss George gewinnen. Wir haben dieses Jahr extrem hart gearbeitet und der 18. November ist die Chance für George, den nächsten wichtigen Schritt in Richtung Weltmeistermeisterschaft zu gehen. Eduard Gutknecht ist ein bewährter Operator, bei dem wir es uns nicht leisten können, ihn auf die leichte Schulter zu nehmen. Eddy hat eine hohe Schlagleistung und ist extrem langlebig, demnach haben wir uns auf 12 harte Runden vorbereitet. George hat sich mit jedem Camp verbessert und ich glaube, dass er in naher Zukunft ein gekrönter Weltmeister sein wird, aber an erster Stelle, muss er das gut durchführen gegen Eduard Gutknecht am 18. November.

Barry McGuigan: Das wird ein gespaltener Kampf und ich bin sehr erfreut, dass es live und exklusiv auf Channel 5 sein wird. Stile machen die Kämpfe aus und dieser Kampf hat alle Zutaten, die ein fantastischer Wettkampf braucht. Wenn George seine Kraft und Fähigkeit auf Gutknechts unnachgiebige Arbeitsrate und seinem Granit-Kinn treffen, dann werden die Fans nicht enttäuscht sein am 18. November in der Wembley Arena.

Groves vs Gutknecht 18.11.2016 London

DSC06163    DSC05662 Eddy Gutknecht.JPG

Cyclone Promotions, in association with Team Sauerland, are delighted to announce that George Groves will defend his WBA International super middleweight title against Germany’s two-time world title challenger Eduard Gutknecht at the SSE Arena, Wembley on Friday November 18, live and exclusively on Channel 5, sponsored by Maxi-Nutrition.

 

Hammersmith’s ‘Saint’ George Groves is currently on an impressive win streak having swept aside Manchester’s former world title challenger Martin Murray in his last bout. Groves now takes on Germany’s respected former two-time world title challenger Eduard Gutknecht, in what is surely a make-or-break contest for both men. The winner of Groves v Gutknecht can look forward to a world title shot in 2017 while the loser will almost certainly have to contemplate a life beyond the ropes.

 

This intriguing cross-roads fight will be screened live and exclusively in the UK on Channel 5 and represents the first fight on terrestrial television for the popular Groves.

 

‘Saint’ George Groves is a former three-time world title challenger who has been involved in some of the biggest fights in British boxing history. Since linking up with 2016 BBBofC Trainer of the Year Shane McGuigan, Groves has looked like a man on a mission. His current three-fight win streak has catapulted the twenty-eight year old back into world title contention.

 

With the super middleweight division currently being one of the hottest in world boxing, Groves can look forward to a plethora of potential exciting title shots in 2017, if he can defeat Gutknecht on November 18 at the SSE Arena, Wembley.

 

Berlin-based Eduard Gutknecht is a former amateur star and one of only four men to have defeated current pound-for-pound king Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin in the amateurs. Gutknecht, 30 – 4 – 1, has twice fought for the world title against Robert Stieglitz, for the WBO super middleweight crown in 2012, and earlier this year when he pushed former WBA light heavyweight champ Juergen Braehmer all the way in an enthralling battle. Former European (EBU) and WBA Inter Continental champion Gutknecht is known as ‘Energy Eddy’ on account of his relentless work rate, meaning Hammersmith’s Groves will have to be at his very best on November 18 at the SSE Arena, Wembley if he is to keep his world title aspirations intact.

GEORGE GROVES QUOTE: “I’m extremely happy to announce this fight and am excited to be headlining on Channel 5. I have been fortunate in my boxing career so far to experience almost everything the sport has to offer but to be fighting live on terrestrial TV is something that has always been very high up on my bucket list.

 

Working with Shane and the McGuigan team in the gym has been fantastic and has shown me the difference that working with a winning team can make. I believe that my performances this year, in particular the win over Martin Murray, has shown everyone that I continue to be a serious force on the super middleweight scene.

 

It goes without saying that I am now determined to challenge again, and this time succeed, in becoming a World Champion. I feel that working alongside Cyclone Promotions for this fight, as well as with my promoters Team Sauerland, with the opportunity to be back headlining in front of a home crowd close to West London, is the perfect move for me – especially with the chance to showcase myself to a larger audience.

 

Cyclone have promoted terrific events across Britain and some of the Belfast shows I’ve attended have been some of the best I’ve ever experienced. I hope to replicate the amazing atmosphere and buzz of my previous fights at Wembley Arena and am looking forward to another big win.”

 

EDUARD GUTKNECHT QUOTE: “I will come to London on November 18 full of Energy and conquer with my Viking Box team. I only want to fight winners and make them lose!

 

“George Groves is a winner and a world class fighter but so am I. The fans in London are in for a hell of a fight on November 18.”

 

SHANE McGUIGAN QUOTE: “This is a must win fight for George. We’ve worked extremely hard this year and November 18 is a chance for George to make another important step towards becoming a world champion.

 

“Eduard Gutknecht is a proven operator who we cannot afford to take lightly. Eddy has a high punch output and is extremely durable so we are preparing for twelve hard rounds.

 

“George is improving with each camp and I believe that he will be crowned world champion in the near future, but first and foremost he has to perform well against Eduard Gutknecht on November 18.”

 

NISSE SAUERLAND QUOTE: ‘’We’re delighted to be working with the McGuigan’s and Cyclone Promotions to deliver George this fantastic opportunity to fight on terrestrial television.

 

‘’Having sold out Wembley Stadium and been involved in a number of high profile championship fights, George is one the most recognisable figures in British boxing and will be a great addition to Channel 5’s boxing content.

 

‘’He looked back to his very best with an impressive performance against Martin Murray earlier this year, and we expect him to look even better when he steps into the ring on November 18 to build towards another world title challenge.

 

‘’We know Eduard Gutknecht well, and we know he is an opponent you cannot afford to overlook, but we trust in George and his trainer Shane McGuigan to prepare the perfect game plan, and to deliver an exciting fight for the fans.’‘

 

BARRY McGUIGAN QUOTE: “This is going to be a cracking fight and I’m delighted that it will be live and exclusive on Channel 5. Styles make fights and this one has all the ingredients needed for a fantastic contest.

 

“It’s George’s power and skill against Gutknecht’s relentless work-rate and granite chin, the fans will not be disappointed on November 18 at Wembley Arena.

 

“This is also going to be a great telegenic fight and it’s important for our sport that top-level fights such as this are given a platform like Channel 5.”
