Abraham stops Stieglitz in six rounds, retains WBO title

Arthur Abraham retained his WBO super middleweight world title, when he scored a six round stoppage against Robert Stieglitz in their forth meeting.  Stieglitz  suffered a flash knockdown earlier in the fight.

It was the third win for WBO title holder Abraham from the high-profile quartet of meetings and proves ultimately that Abraham is the better operator of the two.

The first fought in August 2012, with Abraham winning the WBO title with a twelve round unanimous decision. Stieglitz got revenge in March 2013 by stopping Abraham in four rounds due to an eye injury.

They met for a third time a year later, with Abraham scoring a twelve round knockdown to clinch a twelve round split decision and reclaim his WBO crown.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
