Braekhus Dominates: Skoglund, Masternak Win By KO

By Per Ake Persson

Frederikshavn, Denmark - Danish cruiserweight Micki Nielsen ( 12-0) closed a long night of boxing with an easy second round stoppage of Georgian George Tevdorashvili (16-11-3), who fought as though he wanted to be elsewhere. Tevdorashvili went down from a right hook in the first, and partially fell a few more times and in the second at 2.29 the referee had seen enough and called it off.

WBC, WBA and WBO female welterweight champ Cecilia Braekhus (24-0) retained her titles with a unanimous decision over Miriam Lamare (22-4) from France. Lamare was floored in the seventh by a right and was second best most of the way but did land a good right in the fourth but the First Lady took it well and was soon back in command. It was scored 100-89, 100-89 and 100-90.

Danish featherweight Dennis "the Menace" Ceylan (10-0) outscored Italian Daniele Limone (11-2) over eight fast paced rounds with little drama. Ceylan showed some very slick moves but Limone forced him to work all the way. It was scored 79-73, 80-72 and 77-75.

EBU-EU light heavyweight champion Erik "the Matador" Skoglund (19-0) retained the title with a 12th and final round stoppage over brave Spaniard Adasat "the Bull" Rodriguez (9-3-1). Skoglund had won all the eleven completed rounds with Rodriguez badly cut after a right in the sixth. He was stunned by a right upercut and with the left side of his face and body covered in blood referee Phil Edwards stopped the fight 58 seconds into the round. The Swede dominated the action and hurt Rodriguez in the sixth with left-right combinations. Rodriguez, badly cut, as well, looked close to being stopped but battled on and Skoglund seemed to lose his concentration and the fight dragged on until the final round. The crowd bood the stoppage and Rodriguez could perhaps have been given him the chance to last the distance

Copenhagen-based Norwegian super middleweight Tim-Robin Lihaug (6-1) stopped German Alexander Runde (6-1) at of the third. Runde was down twice in the round before it was stopped and also down in the first. Lihaug have improved a lot since joining Joey Gamache in Copenhagen. Runde wasn´t bad but fighting stiffs teach you nothing and Lihaug was the much sharper man.

Norwegian light heavyweight Alexander Hagen (4-0) stopped awkward Georgian Roman Javoev (3-2-1) at 1.14 of the third round after scoring two knockdowns in a fastpaced fight with few clean punches thrown until Hagen connected with his right hand. Javoev was tiring as well and Hagen gave it all he had and soon his opponent was on the floor again and it was stopped. It was scheduled for six.

Swedish super lightweight Anthony Yigit (8-0-1) stopped outclassed and overmatched Bulgarian Radoslav Mitev (4-16-1) at of the third. Mitev was down in the second as well and took a steady beating throughout the fight. Yigit is too good for the likes of Mitev and needs to be moved to the next level.

Danish welterweight Kasper Bruun (19-0-1) looked good in beating Belorus Andrei Staliarchuk (11-22-2) over six for a unanimous decision win on scores of 60-52 on all cards. Staliarchuk suffered a flash knockdown in the third and was also counted over in the fifth even though it looked more like an off-balance slip. Staliarchuk have been to Denmark three times now and won only one of the 6 completed rounds on one scorecard. He comes to survive and did just that this time as well even though under heavy pressure at times.

Polish cruiserweight Mateusz Masternak (31-1) opened Sauerland Promotion´s show at the Arena Nord with a fourth round knockout over Georgian journeyman Sandro Siproshvili (27-18). Masternak caught Siproshvili coming forward with a short right and Siproshvili went down and out at 2.34. The former EBU champ had won all three completed rounds but looked a bit lethargic in the first two before going to work in the third.

[QUOTE=Foreign Soil;14195595]It was a close and great fight but Masternak has always had defensive lapses since he comes forward, throwing combos and doesn't really have one punch power, so Drozd's power kept hurting him. I don't think Masternak should try…

[QUOTE=Scott.Weiland.;14194645]Agreed.a fight that could have gone either way if not for the stoppage.I think Masternak should been allowed to continue or at least allow a rematch in Poland.[/QUOTE] It was a close and great fight but Masternak has always had…

Good fight by Cecilia.

[QUOTE=Freedom2014;14192501]Masternak is talented and he's still a potential champ. His fight with Drozd was one of the best fights of 2013.[/QUOTE] Agreed.a fight that could have gone either way if not for the stoppage.I think Masternak should been allowed to…
