Arthur Abraham: I just have to win Stieglitz

PanARMENIAN.Net - Arthur Abraham’s (34-3, 27 KOs) big night is getting closer. On August 25 he will take on the reigning WBO Super-Middleweight World Champion Robert Stieglitz (42-2, 23 KOs) at the o2 World Berlin, Germany. After several setbacks in the past many experts believe that this could be his last chance to fulfil his dream of becoming a world champion in this division.

“From my last fight, I learnt that I have to throw a lot more punches and not to give my opponent as much time to recover. I also want to improve my footwork and be more agile. I should probably use my left hand more often too,” the boxer said, commenting on the upcoming clash.

“Robert is a strong boxer. He throws a huge amount of punches with his right as well as his left hand. He also possesses a lot of speed. I know that I have to be really careful when I am in the ring with him. But I just have to win – there is no way around it. The pressure on me is huge and I have to deal with that.” fightnews.com quoted Abraham as saying.
