Preview and Prediction for Robert Stieglitz vs. Yuzo Kiyota Bout

On July 13 in Dresden, German resident and Russian native Robert Stieglitz will defend his WBO super middleweight title against Yuzo Kiyota of Japan.

While there is little disagreement that pound-for-pound star Andre Ward is the true champion at 168, Stieglitz would have to rank in the top five in the division—based solely on resume. He is one of the biggest names at super middleweight who has yet to face Ward.

The boxing scene in Germany is always healthy, and Stieglitz has emerged as a star there in recent years. Kiyota is an obscure challenger but will likely bring a lot of fighting spirit with him in his first fight ever outside of Tokyo.
