Arthur Abraham vs. Raul Marquez Postponed

Fightnews.com is reporting that Arthur Abraham is out with the flu and the fight is being moved to November 8th. Bummer.

It's always a little fishy when something like this goes down. But on the other hand, considering the danger and the stakes involved, it's understandable why a fighter would only want to fight if 100%.

Of course, if this were American football or the Olympics, there wouldn't be this option.

Not to drag boxing's "cousin" into this once again, but one wonders what would happen if a fighter told Dana White the morning of a championship, PPV-headlining fight that he had the flu.
