The police in Magdeburg are investigating a brawl involving former super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (42-3, 23KOs). According to police reports, Stieglitz was involved in a physical confrontation with his 57-year-old former father in law. The father in law was admitted to hospital with minor injuries.
Stieglitz, who was on his own property, told police that he had to defend himself as the father in law attacked him with an iron rod and hit him "at least ten times."
The conflict has been brewing for a long time, and has to do with a post-divorce dispute over some property between Stieglitz and his ex-wife's parents. The father in law had blood drawn on the day of the incident and police confirm that alcohol was found in his system.
