Photos: Abraham, Stieglitz Face To Face, Rematch Presser

It won´t be a walk in the park. When Arthur Abraham (36-3, 28 KOs) defends his WBO Super-Middleweight Title at the GETEC-Arena in Magdeburg, Germany on March 23, he enters the Lion´s Den. The man aiming to take King Arthur´s belt away is Robert Stieglitz (43-3, 24 KOs), who will more or less have home advantage. Abraham dethroned Stieglitz on August 25 at the o2 World in Berlin. “That fight was in my own backyard”, said Abraham. Now the pair will meet again in Stieglitz´s backyard.

The first showdown took place at today´s press conference in Magdeburg. "I didn’t lose the belt, I just borrowed it. I had a bad day back in August," said the former champion. Of course the 31-year-old wants to use this rematch to win back the WBO Title. Abraham on the other hand displayed a very relaxed attitude but did promise the fans a real battle. "I am twice as motivated now that Robert wants to win back the title. All I will say is that this fight will turn out to be a war." His prediction: "I will keep the belt."

Stieglitz´s coach Dirk Dzemski is hoping that his prodigy will be able to stick to his game plan come March 23. On the other hand Abraham´s trainer Ulli Wegner is looking forward to the big fight night in Magdeburg. This is the same place where he celebrated some great victories with Sven Ottke. "It is great to be back home. The only obligation we have is to keep the title."

Kalle Sauerland is also expecting a thrilling encounter: "The rematch might be even better and more dramatic than the first fight – we might even get to witness a KO."

Yeah these two are pretty much on the same level at SMW and they can produce a hell of a fight. I hope it will be as exciting as the first one ! I think AA will win more convincingly…

The first fight was pretty close, and I expect more of the same.

[QUOTE=SnakeVen0m;13027381]In all honesty that's all they have to jab at cause he's whipped most of them :boxing:[/QUOTE] Yeah, they have to resort to landing verbal jabs since they couldn't land many actual jabs on him. :lol1:

I see the same result as the first fight, Stieglitz is far too rigid and eats AA's hooks clean. Can't learn defence over night, and Stiegs is set in his ways as a veteran fighter. I thought Stiegs would win…

I thought AA clearly won the first bout, though it was competitive. Stieglitz was obviously more active, but I generally found his attack ineffective, while the force of AA's punches shook Stieglitz several times. I'll take AA by decision.
