Former super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (43-3, 24Kos) returned to the ring at Bon Pastor in Cataluna, Spain - and knocked out Michal Nieroda at 1:45 of the third round. It was a tune-up fight for Stieglitz, who has been inactive since last August's twelve round decision loss to Arthur Abraham. The next step for Stieglitz is a likely rematch with Abraham for the WBO championship on March 23rd in Magdeburg. Sauerland Event and SES are expected to announce the rematch this week.
