Stieglitz: Let's See How Groves Will React To My Pressure!
By Ruslan Chikov
WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (41-2, 23KOs) is ready to defend his title against undefeated British contender George Groves (14-0, 11KOs) on May 5th in Erfurt, Germany. Groves secured the mandatory position with the WBO and the winner is going to move forward to a year-end battle with Arthur Abraham. Steiglitz has respect for Groves, but also sees several holes that he plans to expose in the British boxer's style of fighting.
"I saw his [May] fight [against James DeGale], which lasted the entire twelve rounds. George Groves is a good boxer, knows how to move. The Briton is a little taller than me, but I don't think its going to play a key role in the fight," Stieglitz said to Dmitry Grebenshchikov.
"The British boxer fights in a very aggressive manner. He [leaves himself open] when he's trading punches. Let's see how [Groves] will [react] when he's put under constant pressure."

I'm pulling for Groves in this fight. If he can beat Stieglitz, and than rematch DeGale and beat him convincingly, I can see him getting a big fight at SMW against someone like Ward-Bute-Froch.Comment by P4P_No1 on 04-10-2012
