The biggest shopping mall of Magdeburg played host for today´s public
workout ahead of Saturday´s big fight night at the GETEC-Arena. The main
event of the evening will see current WBO Super-Middleweight Champion Arthur
Abraham (36-3, 28 KOs) take on Robert Stieglitz (43-3, 24 KOs) in their
hotly anticipated rematch. The excitement of the fans was a close
resemblance to the fights of Sven Ottke, who celebrated some of his greatest
victories in the east of Germany. More than 1.000 people came to see the
boxers up close and were more than impressed with the skills they put on
display.

First to step into the ring inside the mall was former champion Robert
Stieglitz, who once more made his intention of getting revenge on Abraham
clear. However, the challenger was keen not to give too much away and only
went one round with his coach Dirk Dzemski while hitting the pads. “I am
ready and will bring the title back to Magdeburg,” said the 31-year-old
super-middleweight who lost the WBO Championship during the first bout
between the two Germans. Of course, Abraham will do everything he can to
destroy whatever plans Stieglitz has made. The 33-year-old demonstrated his
abilities during four stints of pad work with Ulli Wegner who made it clear
that he has an obvious favorite for the night. “My hope is that the best man
wins on March 23,” said the 70-year-old. “And that will be Arthur!”

Robert Helenius (18-0, 11 KOs) also gave the waiting fans a glimpse of what
to expect come Saturday night. The 29-year-old heavyweight will take on
Michael Sprott (37-19, 17 KOs) in the co-feature of the evening and is
looking forward to the big night. “It won’t be easy, but as long as the fans
are behind me I know that I will win.”
