Stieglitz a falcon in the ring

Eroll Popova/SES Boxing

Promoter Ulf Steinforth sees WBO world champion Robert Stieglitz (37-2, 23 KOs) as a clear favorite in Saturday’s world title defense against unbeaten Universum boxer Eduard Gutknecht (18-0, 7 KOs). “Robert has been with me for nearly ten years and his development parallels that of our SES boxing stable. Since our inception 10 years ago, we have worked continuously to advance. Four world champions speak for themselves. Robert Stieglitz came to me as a ‘young bird’ with good abilities and with hard work, willingness to learn and great fights he’s won the world championship. Now he’s my stable’s falcon – strong, fast, patiently waiting and he punches at just the right moment. A falcon in the ring, and once he catches his prey he doesn’t let go. He’ll prove this against Gutknecht and retain his championship belt in his second title defense!” The bout takes place Saturday at the famous Bordelandhalle Hall in Magdeburg, where hometown favorite Stieglitz has fought many times before. It will be the seventh time two Germans have fought each other for a world title.
