EBU Heavyweight title: Alexander Dimitrenko – 12th Rd KO – Albert Sosnowski

Notes – Dimitrenko, weighing in at 253lbs – a near 30lb advantage over Sosnowski, took advantage of that extra power by downing Sosnowski in the championship rounds. Sosnowski was caught with a match-ending uppercut. A closely-scored contest that had split the judges up until the kayo, Dimitrenko’s first defence of his European heavyweight title was ultimately a memorable one for the German resident.

WBO World Middleweight title: Dmitry Pirog – UD – Javier Francisco Maciel [117-111, 115-111, 115-112]

Notes – The Pirog that caused one of the greatest upsets in 2010 when kayoing heavily favoured Daniel Jacobs last year to pick up the WBO strap at middleweight was not to be seen on Saturday evening as the Russian looked pedestrian in picking up a points win in a bore-fest. The most notable punch arrived in the fourth round when Maciel staggered around dazed and confused.

Commonwealth Welterweight title: Denton Vassell – UD – Bethuel Ushona [118-111, 117-112, 117-113]

Notes – Vassell maintained his undefeated record as well as his Commonwealth title by decisioning Namibian boxer Ushona (who also, prior to the dust-up, had an unblemished resume). Ushona looked to spoil the contest and make the fight awkward for Vassell, whose pressure and come-forward style scored him a unanimous victory.

WBA/IBF World Featherweight title: Yuriorkis Gamboa – 4th Rd TKO – Jorge Solis

Notes – On The Beak’s Alan Dawson gave Solis the first round against Gamboa but the Cuban burst into action in the second round, scoring two knockdowns, and maintained that same tempo through to the fourth until the referee halted the fight in order to save Solis further punishment. It was an enthralling triumph for Gamboa, who is currently amongst the elite when it comes to attack-minded boxing.

IBF World Super Bantamweight title: Takalani Ndlovu – UD – Steve Molitor [118-110, 118-110, 116-112] 

Notes – It was sweet, sweet revenge for Ndlovu who, almost exactly one year after losing the vacant IBF title to Molitor in a 12-round points loss, reversed the decision on Saturday night to see the belt instead wrapped round his bantam waist. With the home advantage, Ndlovu dominated Molitor and caught the Canadian flush in the second round.

WBO Female Super Flyweight title: Carolina Raquel Duer – UD – Aziza Oubaita [99-91, 98-92, 96-94]

Notes – Duer, 32-years-old, successfully defended her WBO crown for the first time against Oubaita.
