O2 World Arena, Berlin, Germany - On Saturday night, "King" Arthur Abraham (35-3, 27KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over Robert Stieglitz (42-3, 23KOs) to capture the WBO super middleweight championship in a very close fight. The scores were 116-112, 116-112 and 115-113.
Stieglitz no-showed the post-fight press conference. A rep for SES Boxing, who promote Stieglitz, advised that he needed emergency medical care for several facial cuts. The rep said he suffered a very deep cut below his left eye and two cuts above the right eye.
i might have watched it on a *river* and the quality was not great.
i didnt know his face was that jacked up. his left eye was puffy after the first right hand he took. abraham throws bombs. the high res pictures posted on the bscene did show some serious damage.
hats off to stiggy, h...
Recieving treatment is the sensible thing 2 do...what surprised me is Stieglitz lost 2 an average guy, technically he's far superior but AA has a limited future, unless he staays in Germany, @ this wt he can't compete w/ the elite...
