Robert Stieglitz-Yuzo Kiyota Clash Set For July 13

By Per Ake Persson

WBO super middleweight champ Robert Stieglitz defends the title against Japanese challenger Yuzo Kiyota, who´s a rather unknown force with no fights outside of Japan, on July 13 in the headliner of SES´ big show in Dresden. Unknown doen´t have to mean poor though and Kiyota comes in with a respectable record of 23-5.
 
It´s already been announced that female champs Ramona Kuehne and Christina Hammer will defend their respective titles but no opponents have been announced.
 
Same goes for WBO Euro middleweight champ Lukas Konecny, who will defend his title in a supporting bout.
 
Lightheavy Robin Krasniqi is featured on the undercard in his first fight since losing to WBO king Nathan Cleverly.

So his new TV deal will be all about defending his title against sub-standard opposition? Disappointing. I guess this rules a Froch bout out too.
