Arthur Abraham: “On March 1, I’m getting back my title belt”
WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz and mandatory challenger Arthur Abraham had the kickoff press conference today to announce the third fight in their trilogy on March 1 at the GETEC Arena in Magdeburg, Germany. Both fighters have one win apiece.
Arthur Abraham: “On March 1, I’m getting back my title belt. There’s nothing more to say. The talking is done.”
Robert Stieglitz: “2013 was my year. I got back my “loaned” championship belt and twice successfully defended it. Now I want to successfully defend my title again. I will remain a world champion. I am really happy about being able to write boxing history. Three times against the same opponent in a world title fight – that has never happened before in Germany.” [Editor's note: apparently he forgot about the recent Huck-Afolabi trilogy.]
Promoter Ulf Steinforth: “Robert Stieglitz against Arthur Abraham – that was the ‘Fight of the Year.’ The second fight between the two in 2013 was one of the most moving moments of my life.”
