Sturm-Stieglitz winner faces Abraham

Next month’s clash between former two time World Boxing Organization super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (47-4, 27 KOs) and former IBF/WBA middleweight title holder Felix Sturm (39-4-2, 18 KOs) on November 8th will determine which of these two fighters will be getting a world title shot against WBO super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham (41-4, 28 KOs) in 2015.

Abraham will likely be fighting a needless rematch against British fighter Paul Smith next to clear up the controversy surrounding their fight last September in Germany. Abraham won that fight by a 12 round unanimous decision, but Smith and many of his boxing fans felt that he’d done enough to deserve a win or a draw. Having seen the same fight, I don’t think Smith did nearly enough to get a win in that fight. Continue reading

Felix Sturm battles Robert Stieglitz on 11/8 in Stuttgart, Germany

Former IBF/WBA/WBO middleweight champion Felix Sturm (39-4-2, 18 KOs) and former WBO 168 pound title holder Robert Stieglitz (47-4, 27 KOs) will share the ring on November 8th at the Porsche Arena, Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Germany.

The fight is being talked about as being a WBO super middleweight eliminator bout. The winner would then get to face WBO super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham. Stieglitz is no stranger to Abraham because he’s already fought him three times in the last 2 years, and if he beats Sturm, he could get a 4th fight against him.

One can only wonder how many times Abraham and Stieglitz will wind up facing each other before they both retire because a 4th fight is pretty much a given at this point. Continue reading

Felix Sturm vs Robert Stieglitz?

Former 4-Time World Middleweight Champion Felix Sturm issued the following statement on his official Twitter account (@SturmBoxing) on the public challenge made to him by former super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz after Stieglitz’ fight last Saturday in Dessau, Germany:

“I was just told that Robert Stieglitz challenged me to a fight. I have no problem with that, we can do it anytime. But I hope that there won’t be any excuses or that an injury happens all of the sudden to prevent a fight from happening. We’ll see if he was serious about challenging me or if he’s just another boxer who talks to much to get some attention by the public.”
