Stieglitz: I Have To Show That I'm Better Than Abraham

By Luke Furman

WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (42-2, 23KOs) is confident of defeating former middleweight king Arthur Abraham (34-3, 27KOs) on August 25th at the O2 World Arena in Berlin, Germany. Abraham became the WBO's mandatory challenger earlier this year after the previous mandatory challenger George Groves became injured and couldn't move forward with a set date against Stieglitz.

Stieglitz is very familiar with Abraham's past fights, and his style, and believes he will utilize the correct tactics to secure the victory.

"Abraham won the right to go against me. He became the mandatory challenger under the WBO. Unfortunately, in recent years there were a lot of mandatory contenders to my title, but they all refused to fight with me. Everyone knows that [Abraham] has a good shot. He struggled with Andre Ward and Carl Froch. He could not defeat either of them, but he gained valuable experience," Stieglitz said.

"[To beat Abraham] you need power, strategy and constant pressure. I know how to move away from dangerous punches. I have to do my job perfectly, so that everyone could see that I'm better."

It's not a bad fight and the winner should be a real player in the division. The winner should fight Pavlik after. That would then put them in position to call out Ward or Froch.

Nothing like stating the obvious is there Robert. hopefully Brian Magee or Thomas Oosthuizen fight the winner.
