Don’t rate Paul Smith, he’s not even the best SMW in his own family, but Abraham will have his hands full for a for a few rounds. Certainly not a foregone conclusion as the author seems to suggest. Reckon Groves fights the winner now he’s signed with the German promoters (I’m not even gonna try and spell it!)Posted July 29, 2014 4:11 pm

Who cares about the WBO Belt at this weight, Abraham was beaten badly by the only 2 names in this division. Proper paper champ. Even the German public will be bored of the Abraham/Stieglitz merry go around.Posted July 27, 2014 3:24 pm
Joke fight.Posted July 27, 2014 1:58 pm
Darn whining article. Stieglitz didn’t “grab and hold” constantly, the rounds went by fairly unimpressively with a LOT of feinting and standing and feinting. Khomitsky had lots and lots and lots of opportunities to let his hands go, which he did all the time – just without connecting, because Stieglitz read his jumped-in hooks after the first two rounds. That’s all. Stieglitz connected more and thus won the rounds on clean punching, not with a lot of damage, but easy enough to count for people using their fingers to count punches landed.Posted July 27, 2014 11:53 am

Odd, I saw a different fight. Stieglitz fought differently, as a counter puncher, and put enough hard hits on, that Khomitsky was done….with head wound.
Stieglitz didn’t jab enough….did clinch a lot…true, but got in enough power punches….many more than Khomitsky who took the first two rounds…..
Stieglitz threw more hooks than normal, and didn’t use the normal one-two as much. Wasn’t swarming.
