Photos: Arthur Abraham, Helenius, Stieglitz Workouts

The biggest shopping mall of Magdeburg played host for today´s public workout ahead of Saturday´s big fight night at the GETEC-Arena. The main event of the evening will see current WBO Super-Middleweight Champion Arthur Abraham (36-3, 28 KOs) take on Robert Stieglitz (43-3, 24 KOs) in their hotly anticipated rematch. The excitement of the fans was a close resemblance to the fights of Sven Ottke, who celebrated some of his greatest victories in the east of Germany. More than 1.000 people came to see the boxers up close and were more than impressed with the skills they put on display.

First to step into the ring inside the mall was former champion Robert Stieglitz, who once more made his intention of getting revenge on Abraham clear. However, the challenger was keen not to give too much away and only went one round with his coach Dirk Dzemski while hitting the pads. “I am ready and will bring the title back to Magdeburg,” said the 31-year-old super-middleweight who lost the WBO Championship during the first bout between the two Germans. Of course, Abraham will do everything he can to destroy whatever plans Stieglitz has made. The 33-year-old demonstrated his
abilities during four stints of pad work with Ulli Wegner who made it clear that he has an obvious favorite for the night. “My hope is that the best man wins on March 23,” said the 70-year-old. “And that will be Arthur!” 

Robert Helenius (18-0, 11 KOs) also gave the waiting fans a glimpse of what to expect come Saturday night. The 29-year-old heavyweight will take on Michael Sprott (37-19, 17 KOs) in the co-feature of the evening and is looking forward to the big night. “It won’t be easy, but as long as the fans are behind me I know that I will win.”
