Sebastian Formella beats Pietro D´Alessio
Feb 28, Hamburg, GER, Braamkamp Sporthalle, Venetis Box Promotion (Elias Venetis), gba
10x3: Sebastian Formella, 68,8, Hamburg, Ger W10-U Pietro D´Alessio, 69,0, Ita/Ger
Vacant GBC I/C title with almost everybody in the packed hall cheering for Formella, who boxed very well behind the jab. D´Alesio, "the Showman", put up a good show but Formella was too fast for him. 100-90 twice and 99-91,
12x3: Omar Jatta, 72,5, Gam W12-S Turgay Uzun, 72,4, Tur/Koblenz, Ger
Vacant GBC 160 lb title. Jatta was agressive but wild and sloppy. Uzun, not in good condition, fought a defensive fight countering well at times.Uzun was down in the fifth but didn´t look hurt. 115-112 Uzun, 116-111 and 114-113 for Jatta. Golovkin and his team left ringside during this fight and I can´t blame them.

Akberbaev is promoted by GGG Promotions and GGG, Gennadyi Golovkin, himself was ringside. Mino was grossly overweight and totally out of shape. Akberbaev floored him three times before it was stopped. The vacant GBC title was at stake.
4x3: Nico Venetis, 59,5, Hamburg, Ger KO 1 (2.20) Petr Gyna, 61,0, Cze
Gyna took a beating all the way and didn´t put up any kind of resistance.

Kummer was out fast but walked into a counter right and almost went down. After that Jonauskaite faded and was stopped after a standing eight count - it was ruled as a KO.

Mohammed Soltby, 88,0, Rus/Hamburg, Ger W 6 (60-54) Marcel Erler, 92,0, Berlin, Ger
Soltby, trained by Juan Carlos Gomez, tall, and stylish, boxed well behind the jab. Erler was in it to survive and did so without any bigger problems except that he lost every round.
Misha Manukian, 81,0, Arm/Berlin, Ger W 4 (39-38) Yesilat Berkta, 76,0, Tur/Cologne, Ger
Berkta had a t-shirt that said "I´m muslim, don´t panic". It was a close fight between two green fighters.
4x2: Dina Thorslund, 56,0, Den TKO 1 (0.30) Petra Podraska, 53,0, Cze
Two debutants but while Thorslund knew the basics Podraska was a complete novice and was knocked down right away. She got up and was disoriented and took a few more punches and it was stopped.
Moris Markowitsch, 76,5, Uzb/Cologne, Ger D 4 (38-38) Vartan Avetisyan, 82,0, Arm
Tough fight where the bigger Avetisyan seemed to have the edge but Markowtisch´s high workrate and agression paid off with the scoring referee.
4x3: Robert Larsen, 74,0, Den, gba TKO 2 (2.20) Bohuslav Jano, 71,0, Cze
13 years after announcing his prodebut the now 39-year old Robert Larsen finally turned pro. Jano came in as a late sub for Josef Holub, who reportedly had landed in the slammer. Jano did what he was supposed to do and fell apart already in the first. Larsen tired but had enough boxing in him to keep going. Jano "retired" with a hurt left shoulder but continued until Robert got him with bodyshots and it was stopped.
