Arthur Abraham vs Robert Stieglitz rematch possible for April 9

Boris Streubel

Arthur Abraham is reportedly negotiating to defend his WBO super middleweight title against the man he took the belt from in August, Robert Stieglitz.

Arthur Abraham is in negotiations for an April 9 rematch with the man he beat for the WBO super middleweight title in August, Robert Stieglitz. Abraham won the belt by unanimous decision in a close, competitive affair in Germany.

To nobody's surprise, the rematch would also take place in Germany if a deal is finalized. Abraham (36-3, 28 KO) ran through Mehdi Bouadla this past weekend, stopping the overmatched Frenchman in the ninth round. Stieglitz (42-3, 23 KO) has not fought since dropping the title to Abraham.

The win over Stieglitz allowed gave the 32-year-old Abraham a world title at 168 pounds on his third try, having previously been blown out in world title contests against Andre Ward and Carl Froch. Stieglitz, 31, had an eleven-fight win streak snapped with the loss to Abraham, as he'd been on a roll after losing to Librado Andrade in March 2008, which was Stieglitz's one and only fight on HBO.
