Hamburg, Germany - Super middleweight Jurgen Brahmer outscored Argentinian Hector Velzco after twelve dramatic rounds. Brahmer was down in the sixth and wobbled in the fourth, but was also effective with his southpaw left. At the end it was scored 115-112 on two cards and 117-111 on the third but it seemed closer than that and the crowd at
the Color Line Arena booed the decision. Fact is it could have gone either way and Velazco himself felt he would have been happy with a draw. Brahmer is a slick boxer with a good punch and a lot of talent, but appears to be fragile when under pressure.
