Today at 4 pm EDT on Epix and streaming live on EpixHD.com, as well as live on BoxNation in the UK from 2 pm EDT, Arthur Abraham meets Robert Stieglitz in a rematch for the WBO super middleweight title, with heavyweight Robert Helenius and super middleweight George Groves featured on the undercard.
Abraham (36-3, 28 KO) defeated Stieglitz (43-3, 24 KO) in a very competitive bout last August to win the title. Both men have fought once since, with Abraham dominating Mehdi Bouadla in December, and Stieglitz scoring a tune-up win in January.
Helenius (18-0, 11 KO) hopes to look better against UK vet Michael Sprott (37-19, 17 KO) than he did in his last bout against Sherman Williams. Groves (17-0, 13 KO) makes a quick turnaround as he builds toward a May 25 co-feature spot on the Froch-Kessler II card, facing Baker Barakat (37-13-4, 25 KO).
Also on the undercard: Lukas Konecny (48-4, 23 KO) vs Karim Achour (14-3-2, 3 KO); Edmund Gerber (22-1, 14 KO) vs Gbenga Oloukun (18-8, 11 KO); Melissa McMorrow (8-3-3, 1 KO) vs Nadia Raoui (15-1-1, 3 KO); Enrico Koelling (4-0, 0 KO) vs Josef Obeslo (3-8-1, 1 KO).
