Robert Stieglitz Secures Solid Win Over Mehdi Amar

By Alexey Sukachev

Former two-time WBO super middleweight titleholder Robert Stieglitz has set up his light heavyweight title campaign with a much needed solid win, following a three-year / four-fight rivalry with Arthur Abraham, one that he lost 1-3 on fights.

This time Stieglitz, 35, looked as solid as he should, decisioning European titleholder Mehdi Amar over twelve rounds with identical scores: 116-112.

Despite holding a title, Amar, 34, hasn't been ranked by any major sanctioning body. Stieglitz, meanwhile, despite having fought just two unmeaningful fights at this weight class, was rated #7 by the WBO, #11 by the IBF and #15 by the WBC.

Amar was working as a counterpuncher, forcing Stieglitz in with his hand intentionally very low, then trying to emulate former middleweight champion Sergio Martinez but to a reduced effect. Stieglitz has indeed been caught several times but Amar was hit at will either. Both boxers mixed lengthy pauses in action with almost no activity of any note with periods of non-stop action. All in all, it resulted in a close fight but one where Stieglitz looked better a bit.

Final scores are in a good agreement with BoxingScene calculations. A newly crowned titleholder moves up to 50-5-1, 29 KOs, getting his milestone victory. Amar is now 33-5-2, 16 KOs.

------------------------

Light heavyweight Adam Deines (9-0-1, 4 KOs) annihilated Finnish import Janne Forsmann (22-7, 14 KOs) in just a round. Forsman was down twice before the stoppage.

------------------------

19-year old Tom Dziemski (2-0, 1 KO) was lucky to get a dubious four-round decision over well-travelled Czech journeyman Tomas Kugler (15-37-2, 9 KOs). Scores were: 39-37 (twice) and 40-36 - for the son of former fringe contender Dirk Dziemski. BoxingScene saw it 38-38 - a draw, awarding Dziemski only rounds two and three.

------------------------

In an eight-rounder, previously unbeaten German Philippe Nsingi (6-0, 1 KO) survived some rocky moments to eake out a close win over Spain-based Nicaraguan Nelson Altamirano. Altamirano, 25, taller and thinner than his 23-year old opponent used his advantage in height in reach to control Nsingi at the tip of his jab.

Nsingi had some success on the inside on the other hand. In round six, it looked like Nsingi was sent down with what was a legal punch, but referee Daniel van de Viele chose not to rule it as a knockdown. At the end, all three judges had it for Nsingi: 79-73, 78-74, and 78-75, while BoxingScene had it closer: 76-75 - for the German. Altamirano drops down to 10-10-2, 6 KOs.
