Stieglitz Not Worried About Possible Arthur Abraham Bout
By Ruslan Chikov
WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (41-2, 23KOs) is defending his title against undefeated British contender George Groves (14-0, 11KOs) on May 5th in Erfurt, Germany. The winner of the fight is likely going to face the WBO European champion Arthur Abraham (34-3, 27KOs) at the end of the year.
If he defeats Groves, Stieglitz would like to grasp the opportunity of facing Abraham, but he's not worried about the fight - sensing that Abraham was a greater force in his former division of 160-pounds.
"I watched Abraham's last fight with the Pole [Piotr Wilczewski]. He was a good opponent. But I'm a completely different level of opponent than Wilczewski. In addition, in Abraham's recent fights we've seen that he's had a lot more difficulties in this weight class, where he doesn't have any physical superiority," Stieglitz said to Dmitry Grebenshchikov.
He better get past George Groves first.Comment by sako5 on 04-11-2012
