Arthur Abraham: clash vs. Stieglitz will be interesting to German fans

PanARMENIAN.Net - WBO European champion Arthur Abraham (34-3, 27KOs) is ready for the challenge of facing full WBO king Robert Stieglitz (41-2, 23KOs), boxingscene.com reports.

British boxer George Groves (14-0, 11KOs) was removed from the mandatory position - and the sanctioning organization approved Abraham (34-3, 27KOs) as the new mandatory challenger to Stieglitz.

Groves was scheduled to face Stieglitz (41-2, 23KOs) on May 5th in Germany. On Tuesday, April 17 he withdrew with a nose injury. Stieglitz was given the option of making a voluntary defense on May 5, but then he has 90 days to fight Abraham.

Abraham wants the fight and he was confident his countryman would have defeated Groves.

"I think Stieglitz would beat Groves because he is a lot stronger. I want to [face] Stieglitz, because he also lives in Germany - and for German fans [the two of us fighting] for a world title will be very interesting," Abraham said.
