KIEL  - Germany's former world champion Arthur Abraham has landed a shot at the WBO world super middleweight title after his unanimous points win over Poland's Piotr Wilczewski. Abraham is now the mandatory challenger for super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz of Germany.

The 32-year-old Armenia-born Abraham, the former IBF middleweight champion, picked up the 34th victory of his 37 fights in Kiel on Saturday night in front of 6,000 spectators, but looking convincing only rarely. "I tried to do what my coach told me," said Abraham after the fight.

"I will train more, so it works better next time and I will be in shape for the world title." Abraham was later taken to hospital as a precaution after complaining of dizziness and pain in his right ear with a suspected perforated eardrum. Having lost to Britain's Carl Froch and US fighters Andre Dirrell and Andre Ward during the world Super Six contest at super middleweight after stepping up a division, Abraham has struggled to recapture his previous form. He was disqualified against Dirrell in March 2010 for hitting his opponent after he slipped in the 11th round and suffered the first defeat of his career before losing over 12 rounds to Froch, in November 2010, and Ward, in May 2011.
