This will be an interesting one fought under the radar. The Columbian can pop or be popped.

i don't know anything about stiglitz but i hope berrio can pull this one off, i've seen him pull off upsets before, he'd make a great IBF champ

I'm going to try catch a stream of this. Unless Stieglitz gets ko'd or properly dominated he'll get the decision. An undefeated German losing in Germany in a close fight isn't gonna happen.

But more interestingly, what will happen next?

Seeing as the IBF are probably the strictest of the organisations in terms of making their champions fight mandatories, could this be the quickest route for Lucian Bute or Carl Froch to get a title shot? Or will they give the nod to Jeff Lacy to try reclaim his title?

Either way, with Stieglitz the probable winner, it looks like anyone wanting the title will have to go to Germany.

i hope it's bute.... lacy could get his belt back, if his rotator heals properly... if kessler was smart he'd try to go for the belt, if he could be undisputed at 168 he could force everybody to some to him, but i'd really like to see bute get that strap

No doubt the IBF champ will get an offer from Kessler, he allways claims it's his top goal to unify the tittles, but i would be amazed if whoever wins would be ready for a unification fight so soon. That would demand some big balls.

german boxing events always look quite flashy if a little plastic. the mandatory rock band must be coming up...any...second...now.

it should be starting in the next 10 minutes or so though?

i'm in two minds whether to watch this or get some sleep before the hbo / sho cards later

ring entrances just about to start...this must be the german guy comin in wearing chainmail over his head...kind of a warrior theme i guess

R1…

Slow start…berrio threw a little more, but steiglitz seems to have a little more purpose and landed the heavier shots. Close round, but I’ll give this one to steiglitz

10 - 9 steiglitz

rooq
03-03-2007, 06:12 PM
r2...steiglitz throwing combinations..has caught berrio without really hurting him...berrio responds but the german is the one going forward and looking more aggressive...berrio managing to throw counters but isn't really landing cleanly

1: 10 - 9 steiglitz
2: 10 - 9 steiglitz

r3...berrio throwing some decent jabs but steiglitz again more aggresive with decent combos...berrio only really throwing combinations on the counter...woah...berrio throws an overhand right out of nowhere and knocks the german down...

and then again...its over!!...steiglitz went down again, got up, and berrio continued an attack without reply ending with the ref stepping in

i just realised (or remembered)...Steiglitz is the guy the IBF wanted Calzaghe to fight!

What a joke that would have been...Joe did the right thing.

So what makes you think Manfredo is any better/any less of a joke?

And Stieglitz was the dominant fighter untill the first KD. Not like he looked like complete garbage throughout the fight.

Don't try and make it sound better for Stieglitz: He was crushed by a fighter who'd lose to every top 10 fighter in the division.

"We expect Alejandro to make his first defence in May or June" said Wilfried Sauerland. "We have Danilo Haussler, Mads Larsen, Markus Beyer or Vitaly Tsypko but Haussler will get the question first and then we will see. We are open for all possibilities." "If Team Palle wants to do a unification fight with Kessler we are open for offers" said matchmaker Hagen Doering.

This is interesting - Berrio seems to be a very weak champ and I imagine, that Team Palle would be very interested in the third belt for Kessler.

well before the fight the ibf top 5 was...

steiglitz
berrio
bute
lacy
froch

with the ibf being pretty mandatory-happy i'm hoping for an eliminator between bute and froch to become challenger. **** lacy...i think he needs more than a home town decision against a forgettable eastern european to be a challenger again.

Sorry mate, just trying to wind this dickhead up. he likes to give abusive karma.

You will one day soon also be a Froch fan.

Kessler is still a bummer

A Froch vs Bute fight would be a cracker, if its in England i'll definatly try to get to it. Both these two would beat Lacy comfortably, with the winner going on to be world champion in the near future.

THE MONK TALKES SENSE.

If in England it will be at Nottingham Ice Stadium. Awesome venue for Boxing.

he didn't look complete garbage but he wasn't that impressive either..for all the shots he landed in the first 2 rounds berrio didn't look affected.

the manfredo fight is obviously better from a business point of view but thinking about it, joe-steiglitz would have made better viewing then joe-bika. but then again, joe didn't have any intention of fighting bika until after he had already vacated the ibf.

Don't try and make it sound better for Stieglitz: He was crushed by a fighter who'd lose to every top 10 fighter in the division.

The word "crushed" indicates he was dominated by Berrio. That's very far from the truth. In fact it is much more correct to say he was dominating Berrio untill he was caught unaware by a lucky punch and never recovered. Obviously he should have been more carefull. Being dominant for two rounds before getting KO'ed won't do him any good.
But saying Berrio "crushed" Stieglitz just gives a totally wrong idea about what the fight as a whole was like.

Berrio is probably the kind of fighter who'll always have a decent puncher's chance but that's all against top-opposition. Stieglitz managed to remain focussed and beat Berrio once, but failed in their second fight.

Stieglitz despite his loss is clearly the better boxer of the two.
Both IMO are lacking compared to the absolute top of the division. Therefore Berrio's puncher's chance against Calzaghe might actually be worth more than Stieglitz' chance.

Crushed indicates he was crushingly stopped. The first two rounds mean **** all.
