Quick updates from the weekend.
Robert Stieglitz boxed the piss out of the VERY over matched Henry Weber. I had it 12-0 for Stieg, even though one judge had it 116-112... which I can't see for the life of me. Either way, that's hurdle one out of the way for Robert Stieglitz, who will now prep for a HUGE bout with Mikkel Kessler in April, in Kessler's native Denmark. I really hope this one goes through. It'll be a great fight.
Arthur Abraham also knocked out some schmuck on that event with Stieg. He still can't throw a straight punch, and was outclassed - boxing skill wise - for the first 2 rounds. He then "landed" one good shot, and all of a sudden the Pablo was all but done, and seemed to go down on from phantom punches here and there. It's a KO win, but it's clear as day (and I'm waiting for the video to be youtubed) to me the opponent, Pablo Oscar Natalio Farias took a dive. Queen Arthur is a shot fighter who has had to resort to paying guys to take a dive to get paydays after coming up short in all 3 marquee, premier fights he's been in... gotta love it.
Still no word from John Molina's camp on an acceptance for Brandon Rios.
Oh yeah, Eddie Chambers has pulled from next weeks' eliminator clash with Sergei Liakhovich citing a back injury. It didn't take long for a local network like NBC to realize how ****ty this sport can be with injuries forcing cards to be changed.
