MAGDEBURG, Germany - Robert Stieglitz reclaimed his WBO super middleweight title from fellow German Arthur Abraham on a technical knockout after three rounds on Saturday.

"It was a fairly short process," Stieglitz said. "I thought he'd last longer. I worked hard on my right and it paid off."

Roared on by the crowd in his adopted hometown of Magdeburg, the Russian-born Stieglitz took the fight to the defending champion, opening a cut above Abraham's left eye in the second round and leaving it swollen shut by the end of the third.

Referee Mike Ortega stepped in to end the bout before the fourth after consulting with the ring doctor.

Stieglitz improved to 44-3 with 25 knockouts after claiming back the belt he lost to Abraham by unanimous decision in Berlin in August.

"My eye is closed. I can't see anything with my eye. I wanted to let him punch a bit and then start punching myself from the fourth, fifth rounds," said Abraham, who was born in Armenia but fights out of Berlin.

"If he won, he won. Now the third fight is the decisive fight," added Abraham, who dropped to 36-4 (28 KOs).

Stieglitz also indicated the likelihood of another bout between the two.

"I'm always happy to fight Arthur Abraham," Stieglitz said. "I hope the managers reach agreement. I'm ready."

[QUOTE=Mighty_Windir]Right hand after right hand, thats what shut his eye up. A broken jaw didn't quit you, but a closed eye did huh?[/QUOTE] It was an intentional head strike to the eye. Watch it in the middle of round two. A punch didn't do that.
