The always well informed tabloid Bild wrote yesterday that WBO supermiddle champ Arthur Abraham, 36-3, will defend the title against the man he won the title from, Robert Stieglitz, 42-3, March 23 in Magdeburg and quotes Abraham himself as source.
The fight is however not confirmed by neither Sauerland Event nor SES.
The biggest obstacle appears to be the legal troubles Stieglitz may face after he apparently assaulted his father-in-law in what appeared to be a messy faimly affair. Stieglitz has claimed self defence.
Abraham stopped Mehdi Bouadla in his last fight in December while Stieglitz fights tonight in Barcelona, Spain, against decent Pole Michal Nieroda, 10-2.
Arthur Abraham vs Robert Stieglitz in thei first bout
Las Vegas based Swede Badou Jack, 11-0, will return to action February 2 at the Cosmopolitan Casino after a brief layoff while sorting out a contractual dispute. Jack was last seen in May winning a split decision over Alexander Brand.
Jack is still trained by Eddie Mustafa Muhammad and among his sparringpartners is now "Bad" Chad Dawson. The opponent for next Saturday is still an open question but Badou believes it will be Julio Garcia, 6-3. -They can get me whoever they want. I´m ready for anyone and have two months of hard training and great sparring behind me, says Jack.
Badou will now campaign at lightheavy.
Roundzero in Italy will stage Vinzenco Rossitto vs Jeremy Ouanna for the vacant EU cruiser title March 22 in Rome.
The title was left vacant by Juho Haapoja, who challenged Mateusz Masternak for the then vacant EBU crown.
Mogens Nyman has passed away at the age of 73 in Copenhagen. Nyman was 30 years MC for Hall of Fame promoter Mogens Palle and did a great job and also helped the crowds with singing the Danish national anthem and was singer in own band in his spare time.
