Photo: Abraham-Stieglitz 3 - Judges Agree on Most Rounds

This past Saturday night at the GETEC Arena in Magdeburg, "King" Arthur Abraham became a super middleweight champion for a second time when he reclaimed the WBO super middleweight crown from domestic rival Robert Stieglitz in their third meeting. Two judges sided with Abraham 114-111 and 115-110, while a third saw it for Stieglitz by one point.

All three judges had identical scores from the fifth round forward.

CompuBox credited Abraham's work in the second half of the fight as being the difference in securing the victory - http://www.boxingscene.com/compubox-arthur-abrahams-late-rally-sealed-deal--75204

Abraham will return to action on May 31, when he makes the first defense of his reclaimed title.

Pernick scored the first 5 rounds for Robert??? WTF he was watching??? Even the punch stats tell that AA simply outlanded Stieglitz

always suprises me how messy they make it, they can not even count or do basic addition, they have enough time to do it.

a lot of scratch offs & cross outs especially on Pernicks ( he's the WBO's boy) card...a judge once told me, anything other than a 1st score, b it scratch off, write over, etc, had to b initialed...guess integrity doesn't…
