Burg-Waechter Castello, Dusseldorf, Germany - Felix Sturm watched one of his star fighters beaten as heavy underdog Carina Moreno (23-5, 6 KOs) won a ten round split decision over former unified queen Susi Kentikian (29-2, 16 KOs) in a flyweight clash to capture the vacant WBA championship. The scores were 96-94 on two cards for Moreno, and Kentikian was winning 97-93 on the third card.
Moreno had lost her last two and four of her last five. Kentikian suffers her second loss in a row after losing in yet another shocking upset to another heavy underdog Melissa McMorrow in May.
