Photos: David Price, Cecilia Braekhus Get Big Wins

Sport and Congress Center, Schwerin, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany - The second time was no charm for powerfully built but not so skilled Germany-based Nigerian Jessica "Sugar J" Balogoun (24-4, 12 KOs), as she lost her second title shot this year and also her second title shot to world's best female welterweight Cecilia "The First Lady" Braekhus (25-0, 7 KOs).

Braekhus has already fought Balogoun two years ago and won a hard-fought unanimous decision. This time her victory was even more convincing. Scores were: 100-90, 99-91 and 98-92 - for the Norse welterweight queen, who retained her WBA/WBC/WBO titles for the 14th time (at least some of them). Balogoun earlier lost in her bid for the WBF and WBO middleweight titles to Christina Hammer.

Comebacking WBO #10-rated heavyweight David Price (18-2, 15 KOs) didn't look like his usual destructive self against former kickboxer Yaroslav Zavarotniy (16-7, 14 KOs) - but scored a well-earned unanimous decision over ten rounds. Price was effective with his classic boxing, using his jab and adding powerful right hands on occasion. Final scores were: 97-92, 98-92 and 100-90 - for Price. BoxingScene saw it 98-92 as well.
