Stieglitz vs. Ekpo, Mthalane vs. Olteanu on October 19

WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (45-3, 26 KOs) will make a voluntary defense of his world titleon October 19th  against WBO number 7 ranked Isaac Ekpo (22-1, 16 KO's) from Nigeria. The fight is going to take place in Leipzig, Germany. Ekpo, unbeaten since 2008 and winner of his last 18, has spent his entire career in Nigeria and Ghana. Based on his record he is taking a serious step up in class with the champion. Stieglitz will have to face mandatory challenger Arthur Abraham next in a trilogy bout.

In addition, SES still presents a world championship fight between IBF world flyweight titleholder Moruti Mthalane (29-2,  20 KO's) and the Spanish challenger Silvio Olteanu (14-6-1, 6 KO's).

Robert Stieglitz: "This is the last title defense this year, Leipzig is a special city for me, you are not far from Magdeburg and I have a lot of fans. Ekpo is a daredevil and muscular. I have to work with my legs and work on speed. I will train for two weeks in Ptuj, Slovenia. My team mate Jan Zaveck has invited me."

[QUOTE=Spray_resistant;13705872]Stieglitz is the SMW kingpin until Ward proves otherwise, he should stop hiding out in Oakland.[/QUOTE] I agree. I was being facetious to illustrate the absurdity of the Andre Ward mystique. There's no reason why Ward can't travel to Europe…

Another dangerous defense for king Robert, he is really on a hot streak. Ward needs to stop ducking him its becoming shameful.

[QUOTE=PittyPat;13705489]It's just as much of a joke that Abe gets yet another shot at him, though. Wasn't Stieglitz lined up to fight Groves last year? Shame it never happened.[/QUOTE] Well Groves pulled out of that with injury
