Sauerland: Everything Points To Stieglitz-Abraham Trilogy
By Alexander Pavlov
Promoter Kalle Sauerland of Sauerland Event is already getting prepared to get the ball rolling on a trilogy encounter between WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (44-3, 25KOs) and former beltholder Arthur Abraham (36-4, 28KOs).
Last August, Abraham won a close twelve round decision over Stieglitz to capture the title. But then last Saturday in Magdeburg, Stieglitz got revenge with a fourth round TKO of Abraham. King Arthur's left eye was swollen shut after three rounds of action and the ringside doctor stopped the fight when the fourth round began.
"The score is 1:1, and everything is pointing for the need of a third fight. I think [the third] fight could be even better. We are pleased to carry out a third. By the way, Robert himself said the same thing after the [rematch]," Sauerland said.

Can`t see how the promoters will find an agreement. Sauerland always thinks he is in the driver`s seat, but he isn`t anymore. Abraham now has to sign some options to get a rematch!Comment by ddangerous on 03-26-2013
The 2nd fight was just starting to heat up before the stoppage. I'll be very interested in seeing the rubber match.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (10)
