Grzegorz Proksa Dominates, Stops Sebastian Sylvester

Jahnsportforum, Neubrandenburg, Germany - Polish boxer Grzegorz Proksa (26-0, 19KOs) became a star with a third round stoppage of former IBF champion Sebastian Sylvester (34-5-1, 16KOs) to capture the vacant EBU middleweight title.

After taking a pounding in the third round, Sylvester's corner had seen enough and told the referee to stop the contest.
