Arthur Abraham is On a Mission To Hurt Stieglitz Bad

WBO super-middleweight champion Arthur Abraham has vowed to 'destroy' Robert Stieglitz at the weekend.

The 33-year-old German (36-3, 28 KOs) faces challenger Stieglitz for the second time, having outpointed him back in August.

But Abraham - beaten by England's Carl Froch in November 2011 - is promising a much more emphatic conclusion when they clash again in the German city of Magdeburg on Saturday evening.

"We won the first fight and consequently took the world championship," said Abraham, born in Armenia but now a German resident.

"Now it's time for the rematch and we have a clear goal. We have to destroy him and we will do everything we can to reach our goal which showed during our preparations.

"We have a lot of respect for our opponents but once we step into the ring I have to destroy him, no question."

However, fellow German Stieglitz, 31, is not impressed and feels fighting in his home city can give him the edge this time.

"Those are some big words (from Abraham)," said former world champion Stieglitz (43-3, 24 KOs).

"We will see what happens come Saturday night. I am in great shape and want to take revenge.

"There is a reason why I was the world champion for more than two years and I want the crown back. It was a close decision (the first fight).

"I am excited to be fighting in Magdeburg. The fans will help me to take revenge and I am looking forward to that."
