Arthur Abraham a level above Stieglitz, coach  says

PanARMENIAN.Net - Arthur Abraham (34-3, 27 KOs) is reaching for a super-middleweight world championship. After two unsuccessful quests - fights against Carl Froch in November 2010 and Andre Ward in May 2011 - he is now aiming to get it right in his third attempt. In order to get the title, the former middleweight champion who climbed up to number one in the WBO rankings, has to take out the current WBO Champ Robert Stieglitz (42-2, 23 KOs).

“If Arthur puts his full potential on display I have no doubt that he is going to win. But it's not possible to predict outcomes of any kind of sport related activity. Under normal circumstances Team Sauerland should have another world champion,” Coach Ulli Wegner said dwelling on the upcoming fight at the o2 World Berlin, Germany.

“I have nothing but praise for Robert Stieglitz and his attitude and aggressive style of boxing. He makes the best out of his abilities. But Arthur is a level above Stieglitz. If Stieglitz should win on the night he would be a 'Super Hero' in my eyes,” boxingscene.com quoted Ulli Wegner as saying.

Abraham will be fighting in his home city of Berlin at the o2 World.
