Roared on by the crowd in his adopted hometown, the Russian-born Stieglitz took the fight to the defending champion from the start, opening a cut above Abraham's left eye in the second round and leaving it swollen shut by the end of the third.

The ring doctor stepped in to end the bout before the fourth could begin.

The 31-year-old Stieglitz improves to 44-3 with 25 knockouts after regaining the belt he lost to Abraham by unanimous decision in Berlin in August.

Abraham, 33, who was born in Armenia but fights out of Berlin, dropped to 36-4 (28 KOs).
