Boxing Info: Miranda to Abraham

By Boxing Press November 22nd, 2006 All Press Releases


In response to a recent news item that saw Wilfried Sauerland - promoter of IBF Middleweight “champion’ Arthur Abraham – state that he expects his fighter to be back in action in April while making no mention of his requirement to fight number one contender Edison Miranda by June 23rd, “Pantera’ took time out from his preparation for his HBO debut to make the following blunt comments.

“It was very interesting to read that Arthur Abraham has received offers to fight in the United States in April,” said Miranda. “I truly hope that the “champion’ is not looking to avoid his mandatory commitment to me. Remember, Arthur, we have a date to fight no later than June 23 and as the great Joe Louis said, “You can run, but you can’t hide.” I will hunt you down if I have to.”

Miranda was robbed of the IBF title against Abraham on September 23rd in Germany in one of the most controversial middleweight championship bouts in history. After the 12 round controversial decision went against Miranda, the IBF elected to keep the Colombian bomber in the number one spot, thus mandating a rematch with the “champion’ as soon as Abraham healed from the jaw Miranda broke in two places in the fourth round of the bout.

Miranda will make the first defense of his “People’s Middleweight Championship” as the headliner on HBO on December 16th against hard-hitting Willie Gibbs. The bout will be held at Miccosukee Resort & Gaming in Miami, Florida and will be televised live on HBO’s BAD series.
