GETEC Arena, Magdeburg, Germany - Robert Stieglitz (44-3, 27 KOs) got revenge with a TKO victory over Arthur Abraham (36-4, 28 KOs) to recapture the WBO super middleweight championship. Stieglitz came out fast and furious, throwing punches with both hands at Abraham, who did his best to cover up and respond with counters. By the end of the second round, Abraham's left eye was very swollen and starting to close. As the third round closed, so did Abraham's eye and was unable to see. The fight was stopped as the bell sounded to start the fourth, which made it a TKO in four.

i figured it was a punch. but if a butt caused that injury it should've been a no contest.
