Default Fight that never happened 2010: Robert Stieglitz vs Edison Miranda

This was probably Miranda's best chance at a title.

Stieglitz had won the WBO belt which continues to have a weak lineage post Calzaghe just a few months before***. Stieglitz is a decent fighter but not so special that he couldn't be hammered by Librado Andrade and decked by Alejandro Berrio in a rematch. Also, a lot of Stieglitz' weaknesses hurt him against Miranda (poor defense, iffy chin, not much power).

Miranda pulled out of the fight 2 weeks away from fight night because he had been battling illness. What happened after that for both fighters goes as follows: Stieglitz proceeded to have weak defenses: Eduard Gutknecht, Khoren Gevor, Enrique Ornelas, Henry Weber, etc. until finally being upended by Arthur Abraham earlier this year.

Miranda on the other hand took on Lucian Bute a few months later and was knocked out in short order. He would move up to LHW and get beaten by every live fighter he took on.

So with that in mind, who would have won this fight had it taken place in January 2010. Would Stieglitz have continued his reign of terror or would Miranda have finally won a title?
