SES Wins Purse Bid For Stieglitz-Abraham Rubber Match

Robert Stieglitz and Arthur Abraham will be sufficiently compensated for their efforts to help break the tie in their in-ring rivalry.

A recent purse bid was won by Sport Event Steinforth (SES), Stieglitz’ promoter to earn the right to promote the ordered super middleweight title fight. With a bid of more than $3.1 millon USD, SES will serve as lead promoter for the rubber match, which is scheduled to take place March 1 in Stieglitz’ hometown of Magdeburg, Germany.

The next highest bidder was Abraham’s promoter, Sauerland Event who offered a generous $1.5 million in hopes of gaining promotional control. Results of the purse bid were revealed through Sauerland Event’s Twitter feed.

“Another crazy purse bid today!! Abraham v Stieglitz. We bid USD 1.5m, SES bid more than double!! Congrats and thank you very much,” Kalle Sauerland tweeted on Sunday.

The bid amount translates to a career-high payday for Stieglitz (46-3, 26KO), who is guaranteed $2.3 million for the third defense of the super middleweight belt he won earlier this year. Abraham’s guaranteed amount comes out to roughly $800,000.

Both fighters have claime a win over the other in their respective hometowns, which for the moment favors Stieglitz heading into the potential tiebreaker. Abraham scored a career-resurrecting 12-round points win last August in his adopted hometown of Berlin, ending Stieglitz’ three-year stay as a super middleweight titlist, while himself becoming a two-division champ.

His stay near the top of the mountain wasn’t very long. Just one defense was managed by Abraham (38-4, 28KO) made one title defense before returning the favor of defending the title on the road, agreeing to face Stieglitz in Magdeburg for the rematch. Stieglitz delivered a career best performance, delivering a genuinely shocking moment for the 2013 boxing season in destroying Abraham after just three full rounds of action.

Stieglitz has since enjoyed two title defenses amidst a current four-fight win streak.

Abraham enters what could possibly serve as his last-ever title shot having won two straight. The 33-year old is 6-1 overall in life beyond the Super Six tourmanent, which – while financially beneficial – nearly ruined his career, suffering three of his four career losses over the course of the extended round robin tournament.

Groves galloping towards crack at WBO crown

British super-middleweight championGeorge Groves has been catapulted into the world-title picture, with the WBO ordering a purse bid for a fight against Robert Stieglitz.

Stieglitz, who holds the WBO crown at 12 stone, is a veteran of 29 more professional fights and would represent a significant step up in quality for Groves.

The organisation’s ruling has taken many by surprise, considering both participants are facing difficult assignments next: Stieglitz is scheduled to meet Mikkel Kessler on April 14, while Groves has a rematch with Kenny Anderson on March 16.

Kessler is a two-time world champion who can boast a victory over Carl Froch on his CV; Groves was floored by Anderson before recording a stoppage win when they first met in November 2010, on the undercard of David Haye v Audley Harrison.

In December 2011, Groves’ trainer Adam Booth suggested that his charge was not ready to go for one of the most lucrative honours in the division. “It frightens me how little he knows and how much he’s got to do,” Booth told West London Sport.

“I’ve got no problem stating what his weaknesses are at the moment. I’m telling everyone that if you fight George, look for him with the right because you’ll find him.”

The purse bid will take place in Hungary on March 12.
