Robert Stieglitz Stops Nieroda in Three, Abraham Next

By Ruslan Chikov

Former super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (43-3, 24Kos) returned to the ring at Bon Pastor in Cataluna, Spain - and knocked out Michal Nieroda at 1:45 of the third round. It was a tune-up fight for Stieglitz, who has been inactive since last August's twelve round decision loss to Arthur Abraham. The next step for Stieglitz is a likely rematch with Abraham for the WBO championship on March 23rd in Magdeburg. Sauerland Event and SES are expected to announce the rematch this week.

[QUOTE=BattlingNelson;12960575]Props to Sauerland for putting Abraham in against Stieglitz in the latters hometown. I know I'm in a minority here, but I had Stieglitz winning a close decision the last time out so I think it's not impossible for him…
