Arthur Abraham Vs Robert Stieglitz – 23/03/13

Location – GETEC Arena, Magdeburg, Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany 

WBO super middleweight title

These two rematch in what was a really mouth watering clash last summer, some may remember i made a play on a Abraham KO/TKO victory last time out, But Stieglitz showed tremendous heart and a solid chin to take Abraham the distance and come up marginally short.

This time the bout takes place in Stieglitz home town of Magdeburg, Abraham will desperately want the KO and Stieglitz fighting in his home town will give it everything and some and showed an amazing chin last time out and i have to admit surprised me as he took many flush punches from Abraham and kept on coming.

Abraham is the big puncher in the fight, however he can go for large periods of a round being inactive and will then fight in spurts looking to land the bombs and eye catching shots to win the round, where as Stieglitz has the speed advantage and will adopt a high work rate, and is probably the better boxer.

I beleive in front of his home crowd and with a performance like last time round Stieglitz can win this fight, and i am going to back him to so, i have no doubt it will be extremely close again but Stieglitz has proven he can live with Abrahams power, hes shown he has amazing heart and chin and if he can give that little extra and catch Abrham on an off night i believe we could see him reclaim his world title tonight.
