Robert Stieglitz Vs Arthur Abraham – Fight preview and betting recommendation

Robert Stieglitz Vs Arthur Abraham

Fight preview and betting recommendation 

This is a rubber match after both fighters have knocked up decisive wins against each other in the last 18 months or so, in the first bout between the two Abraham claimed a competitive but unanimous victory on the scorecards.

In the second bout Stieglitz came out of the blocks fast and swarmed Abraham closing his left eye shut in the 2nd round, by the 4th the eye looked a mess and the fight was stopped, Stieglitz claimed a TKO victory in the 4th. 

Abraham has seemed battle worn in his last few fights, once a formidable force at middleweight he just hasn’t seemed the same fighter at super middleweight and i think it is safe to say, while he must still be respected – his best days are past him. 

Stieglitz despite experiencing more rounds in the professional ring has not over the course of his career fought the same level of competition to Abraham, Stieglitz is a come forward fighter with a busy style, he can be hit but has shown a good chin and durability in his career. 

Abraham likes to fight in spurts, he has a habit of closing up then suddenly releasing a flurry when his opponent is off guard or squared up, Abraham has a massive heart and i feel the Stieglitz stoppage last time round was a one off and probably wont happen again. 

I am seeing value in this fight, Stan James have over 9.5 rounds priced up at 5/6 and i think this is most likely a distance fight, both fighters are durable and its more likely we see similar events to the first fight between the two than the second fight.

I am making a reasonable play on this fight going over 9.5 rounds.

Boxingtipster.com’s bet – £50 on Over 9.5 rounds  5/6 Stan James
