Decision

I like King Abraham, but Kessler would definately crush him within 3 rounds, eventhough he is not in his prime.

Abraham was seriously out of breath for most of the Stieglitz fight, and he was punching slower than Froch.

Yes, easy World Championship for Kessler, if he decides to comeback. Kessler could finish off Stieglitz and Bute too, and earn good money, and end his career with straight wins.

Kessler should not try his luck with Ward, and Froch.

Abraham, Stieglitz, zzzz. Fighting each other again and again because they can’t beat the top SMWs.

next they will put abraham in with that useless pri#k degale for a plastic belt.

Nicolas – Ward is of course the clear number 1 in the division, with Froch number 2. And as much as I like Froch I am kind of hoping Groves wins the rematch so that there is at least a fresh challenger for Ward.

Prince-How’s the humble pie taste? I c ur still slagging Abraham off? Still can’t give him credit 4 taking his title back 4 a 3rd time ha ha ha. Tuff crowd, congrats champ ( Abraham )

That Abraham, Bika or Froch can call themselves world champions is a joke. Andre Ward is the true champion, having beaten everyone of these three men with relative ease, with Froch doing the better of the three, and also having beaten Abraham with ease. I saw the fight on ESPN three and did score it for Abraham by 114-111. I thought though thre refere should have taken a point against Abraham in the 12th, for what looked like a punch on Stieglitz when he was down. It would not have mattered though, only the score then would have been 113-111.

AA wins by SD, just as I predicted. I remain the greatest fight prophet EVER born!!!

The result was ok, 20 seconds more in the 12. Round and Abraham would have knocked out Stieglitz…..

Posted March 1, 2014 9:25 pm

Abraham won and he deserves the celebration he’ll likely have. But he’s not good enough for Ward, Froch, even GGG if he moves up to 168. He won’t keep the title for long.

@Swedish Boxing Fan

Why? He hardly won a single round against either Ward or Froch last time (losing by 108-120 on several judges’ scorecards in both bouts). Do you just want to watch him getting his head boxed off again?

Wow, Arthur Abraham pulled it off! He defeated WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz for a 2nd time to win the trilogy war! Arthur Abraham is once again the WBO super middleweight champion and now a 3-time world title holder!

I had my doubts but I’m glad I was wrong and now I hope Abraham will fight Carl Froch or Andre Ward again for there world title belts.

“degales next fight should be on the disney channel.”

Hey, to be fair, he pulls in big crowds: there must have been nearly two hundred people who came out to watch him in that leisure centre tonight!

DeGale is hoping to get a fight with Bika next, though after tonight’s performance I can’t say he’s earnt a shot at a world title.

@Killing Moon The Soothsayer

Good point. It’s Kessler’s birthday today, so perhaps he will be encouraged by seeing Abraham win and make a decision to come back. He would surely fancy himself against Abraham, and it would be a very quick route back to becoming a world champion.

john is right….both gatekeeper but fight was fun to watch

Posted March 1, 2014 8:03 pm

both gatekeepers.

Sure not top five fighters but who cares they were a perfect match and they put on a great fight. By the way the referee did a great job deducting points from both of them.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:46 pm 


Bo Bo Olson

In spite of the KD in the 12th I had Stieglitz up by 4 rounds…perhaps they took points for his wrestling. Most wrestling I’ve ever seen that was not Heavies.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:44 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

If Kessler comes back and that’s a BIG if….Wouldn’t be surprised to see Sauerland matching Abraham and Kessler up.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:39 pm 


Martin

They put on a great fight, but it will be easy for Ward, Froch or Groves to pick up that title from Abraham. Froch already took Abraham to pieces in the Super Six, and Abraham looks to have slipped quite a lot since then. Ward also beat him, of course, though not quite as emphatically. And Groves would beat him easily too.

As for DeGale, well … actually, he not worth commenting on.

Killing Moon The Soothsayer

Lenin: Yeah, acurately Abraham is prolly top 8 in the Smw div so think you’ve read it right..

Posted March 1, 2014 7:37 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

Denno: Abraham vs Bika would actually be a decent match-up…

Posted March 1, 2014 7:35 pm 


JE

This was a solid second tier fight. Neither of the fighters are close to being “world” champions but both are solid top 10-15 fighters.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:30 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

Abraham is the same late-bloomer as always…You just won’t go any places if you allow yourself to lose so many early rounds as he did..But glad he won and hoping to have seen the last to Stieglitz who I find pretty annoying..

Posted March 1, 2014 7:29 pm 


Lenin

Killing Moon, you’re right. Froch would murder both, and Ward would actually play around with Stieglitz as he already has done with Abraham.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:29 pm 


Denno

Killing Moon The Soothsayer – got to agree. Neither would trouble the top dogs, but can still have some entertaining fights a step below. Abraham vs Bika, DeGale or even Chavez Jr could be fun fights and make him some money

Posted March 1, 2014 7:28 pm 


Lenin

Good fight, but with lots of holding, shoving, wrestling, some head butts. Some drama, not the best ref. But exciting, and with a surprising winner. I have been wrong, I was convinced that Abraham didn’t have anymore what is needed to win tough fights. Congratz, Abraham.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:27 pm

The right man won the fight, but Abraham won’t hold the title for long.

Winner by SD: Abraham!

What is with the MCs voice? Ray Winstone wannabe

Posted March 1, 2014 7:25 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

The german commentators thinks they’ve seen a world-class fight…Have to disagree ..This was decent but none of these two are close to the top in the smw division.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:25 pm 


The Prince

longtime with the scorecards. Upset possible.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:24 pm 


Lenin

Denno, both fought dirty. There is not just one to blame.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:24 pm 


Lenin

What I didn’t like is that the ref held Abraham back after Stieglitz took a knee. He gave Stieglitz some valuable additional seconds after the count.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:23 pm 


Denno

Although Abraham could have got himself another DQ with that shot when Stieglitz was down

Posted March 1, 2014 7:23 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

Abraham wins by that last round…Hopefully since Stieglitz is an annoying match-spoiler who holds,leans and slammed his body into Abraham every chance he got..

Posted March 1, 2014 7:21 pm 


Lenin

Fireworks in round 12! Stieglitz takes a knee once, but gets up again. This could mean that Abraham could have won this, but it’s very, VERY close. In my book, both won 6 rounds, so that “knockdown” could mean that Abraham wins this. We’ll see.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:21 pm 


The Prince

called it sometime ago. Stieglitz let himself get caught in the 12th. No defense, and defense wins championships.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:21 pm 


Denno

Abraham knocks him down in the last 30s, may just swing it

Posted March 1, 2014 7:20 pm 


Denno

Lenin – completely agree, Abraham is the boss in there now. The only question is if he left it too late.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:16 pm 


Lenin

Abraham wins round 11. Stieglitz is marching forward, but Abraham is landing his shots. Round 12 will decided this fight.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:16 pm 


Lenin

Round 10: Abraham fighting almost completely without his trademarked earmuff defense which proves his confidence. He’s the man in the ring now. I have Stieglitz still leading by 6 rounds to 4 (both boxers 1 point deduced during the fight). It’s close, Abraham could even win this on points if he takes the last two rounds.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:12 pm 


Denno

Abraham is actually using his footwork to avoid shots, never thought I’d see that

Posted March 1, 2014 7:09 pm 


Jamie

Come on Abraham you can do it

Posted March 1, 2014 7:08 pm 


Lenin

JESUS! Stieglitz took some wicked shots by the end of round 9 that would have knocked out most MWs Abraham faced. But at SMW, the boxers can take those shots. Stieglitz must have a serious headache, though.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:08 pm 


Lenin

Now Stieglitz lost a point for holding. Abraham is the better man right now (round 9, btw).

Posted March 1, 2014 7:06 pm 


Lenin

Yes, Stieglitz looks tired. Abraham is now the one who’s landing the shots with Stieglitz’ pressure gone. Maybe I was wrong and Abraham can win this by (T)KO.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:04 pm 


Jamie

Keep these updates comming

Posted March 1, 2014 7:03 pm 


Lenin

Abraham loses a point after hitting a tired Stieglitz after a break signal. Stieglitz is using it to rest a bit.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:02 pm 


Denno

Stieglitz looked ragged in the last two rounds and Abraham is landing some good clean shots. Getting interesting now

Posted March 1, 2014 7:02 pm 


Lenin

Round 7 also to Abraham. Stieglitz is either tired or taking a break to recollect.

Posted March 1, 2014 7:00 pm 


Lenin

Round 6 is the first round Abraham wins. He landed some good shots, but Stieglitz is still the one marching forward.

Posted March 1, 2014 6:56 pm 


Lenin

Stieglitz has won every round up to now by activity alone. Abraham needs a KO, or he will be retired after round 12.

Posted March 1, 2014 6:52 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

I’m not gonna do a round by round anymore.. since this broken piece of feces site is claiming I post too quickly for the 10th time already…When is this gonna get fixed ?

Posted March 1, 2014 6:52 pm 


The Prince

Abraham is getting tired, and Stieglitz is getting more confident, but open to a big counter.

Posted March 1, 2014 6:50 pm 


Denno

Stieglitz looks wild, maybe banking on being able to stop Abraham again

Posted March 1, 2014 6:49 pm 


doc

Stieglitz reminds me a lot of Sven Ottke. That is not a compliment by the way… : – ) I think that Abraham will take this one…. stiff jab… more precise…. and harder punches.

Posted March 1, 2014 6:48 pm 


Lenin

I’m surprised by Abraham’s jab. He’s worked a lot on it, his left is a pretty good weapon in this fight.

Posted March 1, 2014 6:48 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

3rd: Stieglitz is definently trying to wear Abraham out by leaning on him…Not alot happened in the round…But Stieglitz by activity

Posted March 1, 2014 6:46 pm 


Lenin

First three rounds to Stieglitz, but Abraham is trying to be much more active than usual. Both land some and miss a lot, and lots, LOTS of holding.

Posted March 1, 2014 6:44 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

2nd Round : Both were able to get to eachother ..I would still give Stieglitz the round but Abraham looked better…Stiglitz 2-0

Posted March 1, 2014 6:41 pm 


Lenin

Abraham is fighting for his life. Stieglitz is trying to be Froch and break Abraham by lots of pressure. Both get hit by some shots, but not hurt yet.

Posted March 1, 2014 6:40 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

Ugly first round I have Stieglitz ahead..He is pressing the action…But alot ofholding..
