Alexander Petkovic, Juan Carlos Gomez Get KO Wins

By Alexey Sukachev

Dachau, Germany - Romanian journeyman Vasile Dragomir (21-13-1, 10 KOs) lost inside the distance for the eighth consecutive time - this time to Albanian Shefat Isufi (12-0-2, 8 KOs). Isufi was better in every department up until the end of round four, when the Romanian opted to retire in his corner, citing an injured hand.

------------------------------

Former cruiserweight world title challenger and reigning Global Boxing Union heavyweight champion Alexander Petkovic (48-4-4, 26 KOs) retained his title with the fourth-round KO over Tanzanian import Chupaki Chipindi (11-5, 6 KOs).

Bosnian Petkovic, 33, was in full control of the fight, toying his scandalously known opponent from the very first round. Chipindi, 38, is infamously recognized for reportedly throwing (never proven but clearly seen) his fight against undefeated Russian Rodion Pastukh. Chipindin showed little skills, even less resilience and desire to offer tough resistance to the Bosnian. Finallu, midst into the fourth, Petkovic got tired of waiting and clowning and finished his foe with a combination of punches. Chipindi looked fit to continue but he chose to sit down until being counted out for good.

------------------------------

Coming back to his former kingdom, ex-WBC cruiserweight monarch Juan Carlos Gomez (52-3, 39 KOs) made a short work of incapable Bosnian journeyman Adnan Buharalja (29-19-2, 21 KOs) in two rounds. Buharalja, 33, was went down on a left hand in the first, then he was dropped with a left hand - right uppercut in the second, and finally stopped on his feet by the referee after eating another fast combo of Gomez. Time of stoppage was reported as 2:55 of the second round. The 40-year old Cuban looks to continue his return in the cruiserweight ranks.

------------------------------

In a historical (and thus infamous) German place of Dachau, two Bosnians has kicked off the card, and 39-year old Goran Delic (24-0, 4 KOs) has come off as a winner. Continuing his slow decline into mediocrity (and even obscurity) Delic, once and, amazingly, somehow still a world-ranked fighter (#11 by the IBF at the cruiserweight limit) outpointed his compatriot Ahmet Vunic (0-1) unanimously over six in a boring, viscous fight. Vunic was the third consecutive debutant, defeated by unbeaten Delic, who hasn't fought against a live dog in more than two years already.
