Some commentary from former light heavyweight champion Henry Maske and a quick interview with former super middleweight champion Markus Beyer provide filler as Abraham jumps rope and Gevor shadowboxes to warm up before their clash. Michael Buffer is on hand to announce the entrance of the fighters. The challenger, Gevor, comes in first...a slow walk to the ring, his head hung low as he constantly looks down at the floor...definitely not a look of confidence. The champion, Abraham, enters next dawning a king's crown and a robe decked with fur as a live band plays to the crowd. Interestingly enough, Buffer is only speaking English to the German crowd in attendance at Max Schmeling Halle. "MEINE DAMEN UND HERREN....LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLEEEEEEEEEE!"

Abraham comes out with his guard up and firing the jab. Gevor tries to break through the guard to the body but most of it is blocked. Again, Abraham holds his guard up high and is content to backup to the corner and let Gevor work, landing mostly on his arms. Every now and then, Abraham pokes a jab through and connects, then he covers up and lets Gevor work. They trade to the body. Gevor lands a right upstairs. HARD 1-2 upstairs lands for Abaraham. Now Abraham puts his head down and bangs to the body. Right hand upstairs lands for Abraham. Right hand down the pipe lands for Abraham. Gevor chases him down and lands a left. Round to Abraham who looks bigger and stronger than his opponent.

Both men pecking with their jabs. Abraham lands a right hand upstairs and circles away. Gevor lands a left. Abraham lands a quick combo. Tight guard like Winky Wright for Abraham as he blocks a lot of Gevor's pitty-pat shots. Abraham lands an uppercut and a right hand. Gevor slides a left in through the guard. Nice four punch combo lands for Abraham...and two hard right hands. Wooooo...another big right hand lands for Abraham and the crowd cheers. Gevor rushes in and tries to flurry at the end, but Abraham lands the more effective punches. Round to Abraham, but it'll be interesting to see if the judges will count any of the punches that Gevor has been landing on Abraham's arms.

Gevor still working on chopping the bigger man down as he lands a series of right hands to the body while Abraham holds the guard up. Abraham tries to get his jab working. Gevor presses the action and backs Abraham up with a high workrate. Some of the punches are being blocked, but some of them are getting through.

Another right hand lands for Abraham. Gevor lands a left. And now a right hand lands for Gevor. Round to Gevor.

Both men come out more active now. Abraham lands a nice right hand upstairs. Gevor lands a right hook and an uppercut.

The action resumes....Abraham continues to tee off with the right hand, but Gevor sneaks a left in that backs him up. Round to Abraham, but there's still a lot of fight left and he's looking a bit winded.

Looks like Grevor was game and was making a push in the middle rounds but Abraham started getting him in the later rounds...
Aug 18 2007, 05:16 PM
KO of the year in my opinion.
I don't know...I might have to refresh my memory with Cintron's KO of Matthyse, but the way Gevor's head snapped, it was just ugly.
Aug 18 2007, 05:36 PM
Just seen the punch....WOW....definitely knockout of the year for me so far.
Aug 18 2007, 06:04 PM
I'd like to see Abraham fight another top Middleweight.....Maybe the winner or loser of the Taylor-Pavlik match.
Aug 18 2007, 09:38 PM
I was there...AA coming to the US or at least get his next bout on HBO...look out for the winner of Ouma/Mora being his next opponent...good night...
