Robert Stieglitz To Return on October 19th in Leipzig

By Per Ake Persson

WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (45-3, 26KOs) will make his return on October 19th at the Leipziger Messe Halle in Leipzig, Germany. Stieglitz has fought twice in 2013, gaining revenge over Arthur Abraham with a fourth round stoppage in March and then coming back in July to secure a TKO in ten over Japan's Yuzo Kiyota. The October opponent has yet to be finalized, but SES plans to announce the name at a press conference next Monday. A third showdown against Abraham might on the horizon but most likely not this year. Sat 1 will televise the fight in Germany.

[QUOTE=Spray_resistant;13691674]Ward needs to stop avoiding this force of nature, he is probably shook up by how easily he dispatched AA.[/QUOTE] By "force of nature" do you mean Stieglitz? And you state that Ward is supposedly avoiding this guy? I trust…

Ward needs to stop avoiding this force of nature, he is probably shook up by how easily he dispatched AA.

Comment by BattlingNelson on 08-28-2013

It will probably be a fairly easy defence to ensure the that the lucrative rubber match against AA doesn't evaporate.
