Post Comments Thread For: Title Win Provides Cashout Bargaining Chip For Abraham

By Jake Donovan - Arthur Abraham managed to win a belt in a second division after barely edging super middleweight titlist Robert Stieglitz on Saturday evening in Berlin.

Heading into the fight, there wasn’t a lot of doubt but still some concern over whether Abraham had enough left to turn the feat. The lingering question in the aftermath is just what he plans to do now that he’s back in the title fray.

Past history suggests not very much is in store, other than upgrading his chances for a lucrative cashout opportunity down the road.

Once upon a time, Abraham was among the very best middleweights in the world. For several years, he was placed directly behind then-lineal middleweight king Kelly Pavlik, while some argued that he was even better than the American knockout artist.

Unfortunately, a head-on collision never materialized, largely due to a lack of a genuine effort as both sides seemed comfortable racking up wins and leaving their respective rankings up for debate.

Abraham always expressed a willingness to face the then-unbeaten champ. Included in a near-four year reign was his stateside debut, knocking out Edison Miranda in their June ’08 rematch in Florida, albeit in a non-title fight. The reign ended in late 2009 when the Armenian transplant enrolled in the highly anticipated Super Six World Boxing classic the following year. [Click Here To Read More]

Euro level fighter after being outclassed by A Grade opponents....who can imagine that Stieglitz was even a world champion after seeing him be totally destroyed by fringe contender Librado Andrade.

Good luck to Abraham in Europe on those German shows, but not much will change in world rankings and ratings.

The article leaves out Sturm as a possible opponent, which has been rumbling during the lead up of the Abraham-Stieglitz fight. I wouldn't mind seeing that or the Kessler fight.

Fans win for both of those bouts.

AA is a fighter who relies alot on his physicality (alot like clottey or hatton).

When he steps up in weight he is automatically facing bigger fighters and he loses that ability to bully his opponent in the ring.

AA will still be involved in some big fights but like all fighters who adopt the peek-a-boo defence he will be found out against a clever, tough boxer.

Man stop with this euro BS, there are bums and elite fighters from many countries. Look at the heavyweight, cruiserweight and middleweight divisions and tell me where the elite american fighters are...

Default Steiglitz is the Alan Green of germany

How terrible is Steiglitz?? letting old Abe beat on him and take his meaningless nothing title belt?? Just so sad. Contenders are lined up for miles wanting to fight Abe.

"Barely edging Stieglitz"???

Don't know what fight Jake was watching, but the one I saw had AA beating the crap out of Stieglitz and winning easily.

Not an AA fan, eh Jake?

Incorrect. I'm a career-long Abraham fan and have been covering since well before he even won a middleweight title.

The fight was close and several in the media thought it could have went either way.

Good article, lot of information in there.

I don't think many would be against Abraham v Kessler in December that's for sure. As someone said earlier, it's the long-lost Super 6 fight (weren't they initial favorites to win?).
