Louie Burke: Abie Han Update


 By Louie Burke

Opponent after opponent had pulled out of fighting Abie Han for next weeks, Top Rank show on Sept 16th . Rugged Eloy Suarez 11-12-1 is the fighter that finally stepped up to the plate and excepted the bout. This happened after his scheduled San Antonio showdown with Hector “Macho” Camacho Jr. was cancelled.

 Abie has been training diligently but was starting to wonder if the fight was going to happen, with so many change of opponents. In preparation for this fight he was able to spar with tough, talented fighters outa the Pound-for-Pound Gym in El Paso, Tx., owned by Louis Aguilar. He also got in rounds with WBA Champ Austin Trout and highly regarded amateur Zach Prieto.

 Abie says he’s feeling better than his two previous fights in which he was plagued by nagging injuries to his knuckles, ear drum and elbow. He also knows he’s in a rugged fight with Suarez, whose fight with “Macho” jr. was canceled a couple of weeks ago, freeing him up for this fight with Abie. Abie says “He expects a very physical fight from Suarez, who’s fought a ton of top rated talent. Suarez will be a good yardstick to measure where I’m at career wise. I look forward to fighting Eloy Suarez, so I know where I stand with some of the top guys in the division”.

 The fight will be an outdoor event at the QuikTrip Baseball Park in Grand Prairiie, Tx. September 16th.

 Abie wants to thank everyone for the support they give him and his family and wishes his sister Jennifer, who'll be fighing the day before, the best of luck!
