Photos: Hernandez, Arslan Go To War at Messehalle Erfurt

Messehalle Erfurt, Erfurt, Germany - At almost 44 years, Firat Arslan came just two points short of accomplishing an enormous task - winning a major belt in the cruiserweight division at a record-breaking age. He performed well enough for Leszek Jankowiak of Poland to award him a narrow win over defending IBF 200lb champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez with a slim score of 115-113, but he was overruled by Frenchman Vincent Dupas (115-113) and, more importantly, American Shafiq Rashada (116-113), who both saw it for the Cuban.

Hernandez vs. Arslan was the most exciting fight I saw yesterday. I had it 115-113 Hernandez. Close but clear. No controversy whatsoever, that win is legit. Most people dismissed Arslan because he got stopped by Huck, but he beat him…

[QUOTE=BattlingNelson;14865102]It was a brutal fight. I cannot remember seeing any modern boxers ears as effed up as Arslan's. Both badly cauliflowered from Hernandez punches.[/QUOTE] But I thought Hernandez was just pot shotting? /sarcasm
