German with Russian descent Robert Stieglitz, 31, for the 7-th time became WBO super-middle weight champion of the world. In confident, but very tough fight he won Australian war horse, Nader Hamdan, 38. It was 42 win in 44 fights with 2 ko losses for Robert. Now, at August 25, his next defence of his title will come up against another German super-star, Artur Abraham.
Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev, 31, won the vacant European heavyweight title, knocking out Russia representing Ukrainian fighter Alexander Dimitrenko,29, who had the same title 3 times before. The main role to his 16-th victory in the 16 fights (9 ko's) for Bulgarian fighter played the menthal power. With this win Kubrat Pulev becames, probably, the greatest Bulgarian on the professional ring ever!
The main event was Marko Huck's, 27, regular defence of his WBO cruiser weight title, which finally he get done, but in a such a hard way. The fight against Nigerian-born Brit, Ola Afolabi, 32, was prononced as draw! I remind that two oponents already fought each other in 2009 for the very same title, then, also in very hard style, the winner was Huck. This time the champion could be much more less victorious, only if Afolabi wouldn't put his hands down during the Marko's attacks, which let Huck landed 6 times more than he could. Now, Huck's record is 34-2-1 with 25 ko's, Afolabi's 19-2-4 with 9 ko's. Let's get ready for 3-rd rumble of these two!
