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.

That was a terrible outing for Abraham. I'm sure he regrets coming out half sleep cause the fight was over before he even realized he was in a fight. Props to Stieglitz, he was all over Abraham. I wouldn't mind…

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!

The 2nd fight was just starting to heat up before the stoppage. I'll be very interested in seeing the rubber match.
