YEREVAN (Armenpress)–IBF middleweight champion Arthur Abraham, who was born and raised in Yerevan, has been voted Germany’s "Boxer of the Year." BoxSport magazine conducted a poll among its readers and consulted a prominent jury to reach a verdict. "King Arthur" gained international fame by defeating top-ranked Colombian boxer Edison Miranda despite fighting with a broken jaw for the last eight rounds. "I feel flattered and proud," Abraham said of his top-place finish. "There are a lot of big names in the jury and it’s great to have the fans behind me. I will do all I can to defend the title next year." His coach, Ulli Wegner, also topped the coaching division for the fourth straight year. He has coached Abraham to three successful title defenses.
