Stieglitz (45-3, 26 KOs) beat Kiyota (23-4-1, 21 KOs) by a Technical decision last July 13 at :40 seconds of the tenth round when the referee Celestino Ramirez determined that the cuts on Kiyota were caused by an accidental headbutt and due to he was bleeding badly, the fight went to the scorecards.
