Berlin, Germany: - Argentinian Mariano Carrera won the WBA middleweight title with an eleventh round stoppage of Spaniard Javier Castillejo after an exellent fight that had it all. There were no knockdowns but Castillejo had two points deductions, in the fourth and tenth, for repeated low blows. Castillejo made a good start but from the third on Carrera moved a lot better and used his longer reach. There were numerous exchanges and both men showed very good upercuts - and good chins.
