Heavyweight contenders Dereck Chisora and Alexander Dimitrenko sat ringside last Saturday night at the Porsche Arena in Stuttgart, Germany - and witnessed the battle between WBA "regular" champion Alexander Povetkin (24-0, 16KOs) and WBO cruiserweight king Marco Huck (34-2, 25KOs).

Povetkin started off great but faded in the later rounds, which allowed Huck to take over and come close to scoring a knockout in the final round.

After twelve rounds of war, Povetkin won a controversial majority decision win - with scores of 114-114, 116-113 and 116-112. Chisora and Dimitrenko agreed with the first scorecard, feeling the fight was a even draw. Both believe a rematch should happen.

However, former middleweight champion Arthur Abraham was also sitting at ringside. He saw Huck as the clear winner.

I watched the fight live and was shocked by the scores. Huck looked much better and Povetkin was in big danger, even wobbling. Sunday morning I watched it again and my score is 115:113 for Huck! BTW: can someone please explain me how a score of 113:116 is possible? I mean, since even rounds...

I think that Huck clearly won the fight. This guy throws bombs with his right hand!...
