The controversy over their 2006 bout has subsided some, but when it comes to their competitive fires, Edison Miranda and Arthur Abraham still believe they have some unfinished business to resolve. On Saturday, June 21st, in the US, these two world-class fighters will settle the score once and for all in a 166-pound special attraction that is destined to produce fistic fireworks. Abraham vs Miranda II headlines a night of professional boxing presented by Seminole Warriors Boxing Promotions and Sauerland Event. Showtime World Championship Boxing will televise this highly-anticipated rematch beginning at 9pm ET / PT.

?This is the matchup that all boxing fans should love and the type of fight that helps keep this great game alive,? said Leon Margules, Executive Director of Seminole Warriors Boxing. ?Miranda and Abraham didn?t need to take this fight, but they did, not only for their own legacies, but to give the fans what they?ve been asking for, and I expect that they will deliver in spectacular fashion this June.?

Wilfried Sauerland, Abraham?s manager, agreed that the first meeting was one for the ages. ?The first fight was certainly one of the most dramatic and exciting in recent years,? he said. ?Boxing fans all over the world have been waiting for a rematch and we?re pleased that King Arthur?s US debut will be such a highlight.? And Sauerland Event managing director Chris Meyer added: ?To make this fight possible, we asked the IBF to postpone King Arthur?s mandatory defence against Giovanni Lorenzo. After all, Abraham versus Miranda is the fight everyone wants to see.?

?Abraham and I have had a war in the ring with our fists and one outside of the ring with our words,? said Miranda. ?I?ll say this, I respect Abraham as a fighter and as a man for taking this fight, but on June 21st, I will leave nothing in the judges? hands like I did last time.?He could not defeat me when I had my jaw broken twice,? the undefeated champion said ?When I am fully fit, there is no way he can beat me. I am looking forward to the rematch.?

me. I am looking forward to the rematch.?

When Abraham defended his IBF world middleweight title against Miranda the first time in Germany on September 23, 2006, the two fighters lived up to the standards set by previous 160-pound greats as they battled tooth and nail for 12 torrid rounds. Abraham showed the heart of a champion as he fought on despite having his jaw broken by Miranda?s hellacious haymakers, and ?Pantera? showed that he belonged on the elite level as he did everything in his power to take the crown. The officiating from the referee placed an unfortunate cloud of controversy over what was one of the best fights of the year though, with Abraham emerging with his title intact via a unanimous decision. ?I have never fought someone as dirty as Miranda,? King Arthur said. ?But his low blows and head butts could not stop me.?

Getting your jaw broken twice and still winning is an incredible feat.

Abraham was amazing last night...can anyone say Pavlik vs Abraham.

I'd want that one but it looks like they are putting the old Raul Marquez with his unexpected win last night first. Marquez will be KO'd.

I'm so irritated right now. I went dirt biking so I set the DVD recorder up to record the repeat of their first fight. ****. Now I have to wait until Tuesday to watch this fight. I'm glad Abraham won though.

Yeah I noticed that on Fight News, shame really Pavlik fight would be good someone will leave with a 1 next to their record.

Pavlik leaves himself dangerously open at times for raw punchers like Abraham. They both KO'd Miranda so the bout would be intriguing.

Abraham's IBF belt stolen!

IBF middleweight champion Arthur Abraham's successful debut in America unfortunately had a bad ending. Arthur and his brother Alexander had their rental car broken into at the Miami Airport while looking for a cart to help move their luggage just before leaving for Germany on Monday. According to BILD, thieves got away with King Arthur's IBF championship belt, IBF ring, video camera, camera, mobile phone, laptop and various gifts.

Thats funny actually, what will they do now then make him a new one then?

Yeah, they will probably make him a new one. I believe the belts go with the champ. They all get a copy if they were champion at some point I believe. I could be wrong.
