Alex Miskirtchian, 56,5, Bel TKO 12 (2.23) Andreas Evensen, 56,9, Nor/Fin
Miskirtchian retained the EBU title in this mandatory defence after a hardfought, absorbing contest. Evensen was floored in the final round and allright as he got up but his was a mess - to put it mildly - and referee Howard Foster called it off. The Norwegian was also down in the third and hurt in the seventh. Inbetween his face was cut, bruised and swollen and it all got worse due to poor cornerwork. However, Evensen was relentless and just kept coming and while seldom effective he won rounds on sheer workrate. After eleven it was scored 105-104 twice and 105-103.

Patrick Nielsen, 72,4, Den W12-U Patrick Mendy, 71,7, Uk
Nielsen retained the WBA I/C title on scores of 117-110 twice and 117-111.
Mendy was down in the fifth but it looked more like a slip than anything else. Nielsen, a southpaw, had things his way the first five but was too eager and lost his temper. In the sixth Mendy came out fighting as a southpaw and had the Danish Patrick confused and from hereon the fight was even, tough, ill tempered and messy
6x3. Micki Nielsen, 90,9, Den "KO 1" (0.23) Josef Krivka, 87,5, Cze
Krivka went down and out from a southpaw left to the body with the crowd booing.
4x3. Denis Ceylan, 58,0, Den "KO 1" (1.06) Marco Scalia, 57,2, Ita
A right to the side of the body and Scalia went down and out rather easily.
10x3: Erik Skoglund, 79,0, Swe/Den KO 2 (2.02) Attila Baran, 79,0, Hun
Skoglund turned southpaw in the first, set things up nicely and then in the second scored with a right upercut and a dynamite right and Baran went down on all four and looked like a Mike Tyson victim as he struggled to get up but was ruled out.
Deion Jumah, 87,9, Uk/Aus W4-U Igor Pylylpenko, 90,2, Ukr
40-36 on all cards but Jumah failed to shine, had his chin up and his punches lacked timing.
Tim Robin Lihaug, 78,4, Nor/Fin TKO 3 (0.36) Tomas Kugler, 77,8, Cze
Kugler looked totally shot and should have been rescued in the second as he was out on his feet but it wasn´t until the third when Tomas finally sat down that it was stopped.
Shahriyar Weissi, 86,1, Den W4-U Lasse Pedersen, 87,2, Den
Pedersen, a southpaw, tried to box but couldn´t keep the distance and floored by a bodyshot in the third before coming back. It was scored 39-36 twice and 40-35 after a good fight where Weissi wanted it more.
Peter Gram, 90,0, Esbjerg, Den TKO 4 (0.44) Josip Jalusic, 89,0, Cze
Gram made his prodebut and wore down Jalusic and when Josip finally went down in the fourth it was stopped.
Puriya Haidari, 65,5, Den W4-U Said Rahimi, 64,5, Ger
It was fastpaced with Haidari on top until he got caught in the fourth and received a standing eight count. Haidari was hurt and under pressure throughout the round going down at the end as well but it was ruled a no knockdown. 38-37 Haidari on all cards.
6x3: Josef Obeslo, 81,4, Cze TKO 1 (2.35) Ismail ÷zen, 79,0, Ger
÷zen tried to box off the ropes but was caught, was hurt and took a standing eight count but didn´t recover and as Obeslo poured it on it was stopped with Ismail in his own corner.

JŁrgen Bršhmer, 78,9, Ger W12-U Eduard Gutknecht, 78,8, Ger
Bršhmer won the EBU lightheavy title and WBO eliminator with hardfought points win over Gutknecht, who had a point deducted in the ninth for pushing and holding - and there was lots of it but Bršhmer kept coming trying to get on the inside and Gutknecht smothered him and both were guilty even if Gutknecht got most of the blame. Bršhmer, still sharp but showing the wear and tear of a long career, was cut by the right eye in the fourth from a legal punch and the cut was quite bad and kept bleeding. It was an exciting, hardfought, tense and heated battle with Bršhmer?s southpaw left the winning punch. It was scored
114-113, 117-110 and 116-111 - I had Gutknecht winning and wasn’t alone.
Robert Woge, 78,8, Ger TKO 11 (2.25) Halika Zoulikha, 79,1, Fra
Woge won the vacant IBF I/C title after flooring Zalikha in the eleventh with a left hook. Zoulikha was gone but somehow got up and was somehow allowed to continue. Ref Randy Neumann stepped between the fighters to check if Zoulikha was ok, got no reply and waved them on again but the Frenchman sat down as Woge attacked and it was stopped with the French corner protesting. After ten it was scored 96-94, 99-91 and 98-92 for Woge the first score the most accurate in what was a
fastpaced, hardfought brawl with Woge coming forward at all times, stiff and with a leaky defence but a tremendous will and willingness to trade and Zoulikha was worn down.
Dominik Britsch, 76,0, Ger W8-U Luis Crespo, 75,2, Spa
78-72, 79-72 and 79-71. Crespo had points deducted in the fifth and eighth for low blows. Britsch was sharp early but appeared to fade midway and seem to have stamina problems.
8x3: Dustin Dirks, 80,1, Ger TKO 3 (1.17) Christian Cruz, 80,1, US
Cruz was cut on the bridge of the nose and after getting tagged by two heavy rights in the third his cornerman waved the towel and retired his fighter. Cruz’s nose was by then pretty busted but he was still in the fight against Dirks, who covered up as usual before letting go with few but heavy punches.
6x3: Tyron Zeuge, 77,4, Ger TKO 1 (2.36) Srdjan Mihajlovic, 77,2, Ser
Mihajlovic walked into a perfect right hand counter and went down heavily and as he got up it was stopped.
