Photos: Hernandez, Ross Go To War in Bamberg, Germany

BAMBERG, Germany — Cuba’s Yoan Pablo Hernandez successfully defended his IBF cruiserweight title, unanimously outpointing Canada’s Troy Ross on Saturday night. Hernandez received winning scores of 114-113, 115-112, 116-112 from the judges, drawing derisive whistles from the crowd. The 27-year-old Hernandez, based in Germany since 2005, improved to 27-1, while Ross dropped to 25-3. Photos by Wilhelm Springer/box-info.net.

Apart from the opening round, which Hernandez dominated, Ross appeared livelier throughout and clearly thought he had done enough to win. Hernandez was in serious trouble during an explosive third round and received an eight count in the fifth before referee David Fields allowed the Cuban to continue. Ross himself was wobbling in the ninth, when Hernandez caught the 37-year-old with a heavy left blow but appeared too exhausted to finish him off after a flurry of punches.

this wasn't a war it was a one sided beating and a poor decesion. ross won by a lot not just a little.

[QUOTE=apocalypto;12521152]was this really a war and is it worth watching??[/QUOTE] Ross showed some great infighting almost reminding me of a less talented Tyson. Other than that, there's Hernandez letting himself fall many times and a robber decision.
