WBO super middleweight world champion Robert Stieglitz (37-2, 23 KOs) dominated and impressively stopped #11 rated challenger Ruben Eduardo Acosta (23-4-5, 7 KOs) on Saturday night at Bördelandhalle in Magdeburg, Germany. Stieglitz dropped Acosta with a left hook in round three and Acosta was down again from a body shot in the fifth. The bout was waved off during Stieglitz’ follow-up barrage in the fifth. Time was 1:48. Acosta stepped in on late notice after Edison Miranda had to pull out due to illness. It was Stieglitz first defense.
