Hammer-fisted super middleweight titleholder Arthur Abraham weighed 168 pounds for Saturday's defense of his WBO belt against 167.6-pound Robert Stieglitz that will happen on EPIX from GTEC Arena in Magdeburg, Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany.
A 33-year-old former IBF middleweight titleholder, Abraham (36-3, 28 knockouts) dethroned Stieglitz by unanimous decision in August, and is coming off the first defense of his crown, an eighth-round stoppage of Mehdi Bouadla in December.
A 31-year-old who had made six defenses of the belt he won by 11th-round knockout over previously unbeaten Karoly Balzsay in August of 2009, Stieglitz (43-3, 24 KOs) is coming off last month's third-round knockout of Michal Nieroda.
