Stieglitz defeats Abraham via TKO

Robert Stieglitz took back the WBO super middleweight title belt by technical knockout, dethroning champion Arthur Abraham after three rounds on Saturday at the GETEC Arena.

In a rematch, Stieglitz (44-3) was given the victory after the fight was stopped due to the condition of Abraham's eye.

The Russian-born Stieglitz opened a cut just above the left eye of Abraham (36-4) in the second round, and by the end of the third, it was swollen shut.
