Arthur Abraham (43-4, 29 KOs) today talked about a difficult training camp in relation to his intense preparations for his upcoming title defense against Martin Murray (32-2-1, 15 KOs) at the TUI Arena in Hannover, Germany on Saturday.

‘’This has been one of the toughest camps of my career,’’ said Abraham. ‘’My coach Ulli Wegner and his assistant Georg Bramowski have pushed me to my limits. It’s been brutal at times, but it will all be worthwhile when my hand is raised on Saturday night. Martin is a good boxer and I expect him to give me a hard fight, but there is no way he is taking my title!’’

Murray for his part, has gone 0-3 in previous attempts at winning a middleweight title, but is hopeful that his first shot at a 168-pound belt will be successful.

‘’We’ve been studying Arthur carefully and I believe I’ve got him beat,’’ said the 33 year-old from St Helens. ‘’He is a great fighter, but he’s not changed his style in years, and in my opinion, he’s not evolved. It’s going to be a tough fight but I know it’s well within me to win. I won’t be leaving Germany without the title!’’
