German foes in March rematch



Arthur Abraham will defend his WBO super-middleweight title against Robert Stieglitz on March 23.

The two Germans will meet in a rematch in Magdeburg.

Abraham, 32, beat Stieglitz by unanimous decision in Berlin last August. Now he has offered Stieglitz a rematch in his home city.

"For me it is a question of honour", said Abraham, who lives in Berlin.

"Robert was brave enough to face me in my backyard. Now I am travelling to Magdeburg to face him in his."

Stieglitz earned a rematch with a third-round knock-out of Poland's Michal Nieroda in Barcelona on Saturday and is now focused on winning back his title.

"Somehow I wasn't able to fight to my full potential during my first fight against Arthur," said the 31-year-old.

"I suffered some cuts and I couldn't get back into it. It just was not my day. But that will not happen again."
