Abraham beats Smith again, retains WBO super middleweight crown

Berlin, Germany (SportsNetwork.com) - Arthur Abraham once again defeated Paul Smith in a 12-round unanimous decision to retain the WBO World super middleweight title on Saturday night.

Abraham (42-4) earned his sixth straight win and fourth straight title defense since getting knocked out by Robert Stieglitz in March of 2013. The judges scored the fight, 116-112, 117-111 and 117-111.

Smith (35-6) was granted a rematch by Abraham following controversy surrounding the scoring in their previous bout back in late September.
