Photos: Arthur Abraham, Robert Stieglitz Go Face To Face

A deal has been finalized for Arthur Abraham (34-3, 27KOs) to challenge WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (42-2, 23KOs) on August 25 at O2 World in Berlin, Germany. The two boxers met face to face at press conference to announce the fight. An army of reporters and photographers turned out to catch the action.

"I'm happy that this fight will take place at o2 World. I was hoping for another chance to show my skills in this incredible arena in front of as many fans as possible. I am looking forward to entertain them again, like I did back in 2009 with my last round knockout against Jermain Taylor," said Arthur Abraham.

Robert Stieglitz is not fazed at all with the outlook of fighting in Abraham's backyard: "That's my belt and we are going to battle for it - in the end it will still be mine. I will prove that my championship is legitimate, no matter of the opposition, time or place."

Ticket sales for Robert Stieglitz vs. Arthur Abraham are going to start this Friday, June 8. Tickets can be purchased at www.eventim.de or www.o2world-berlin.de. Alternatively, ticket information can be obtained at www.boxing-online.com or www.sesboxing.de.

[QUOTE=BattlingNelson;12213697]Agree. Either Stieglitz takes it on points due to his good workrate, or Abraham takes it by KO. I'm sure that AA will land hard at some point, as stieglitz's defense is slightly average. I look forward to this fight.[/QUOTE]…

[QUOTE=Tobi.G;12213591]This fight wont be boring, thats for sure. Stieglitz throws punches in bunches but has not much power and a bad defense. So stylewise they are day and night, but the skill level is equal. It will be interesting and…

[QUOTE=Drunk Punch;12212536]How many shots at a SMW title will AA get? The law of averages says he's got to win a belt soon by default.[/QUOTE] So far he has had one shot only and that was for a vacated belt.
