Arthur Abraham and his trainer have dismissed the possibility of losing his WBO world super-middleweight title to Robert Stieglitz when the pair clash for a fourth time on July 18.
The 35-year-old Abraham recently recorded back-to-back victories over Paul Smith and now takes on Germany's Stieglitz, who stopped him in the fourth round in March 2013 in between a pair of points victories for the current champion.
But Abraham and his camp have rubbished suggestions Stieglitz could repeat the trick, with the German-based fighter saying: "I have already beaten him twice, and in our second fight I was beaten by injury.
"I can guarantee that the fourth fight will be our last. Robert throws a lot of punches, but he has no killer blow. Although I cannot promise a knockout, I will leave the audience in no doubt over who the better boxer is.
"I will not lose. I plan on continuing my career for at least another two years and then retiring along with my coach and my world championship belt.’’
Abraham's trainer Ulli Wegner added: "Our training has gone better than expected. Arthur has even been sending cruiserweights to the canvas in sparring.
"Stieglitz has no hope. He knows only one tactic, and that’s just to come forward. Arthur is superior to him in every respect. That’s why I expect a clear victory on July 18th. Anything else would be a disaster.’’
