At the Bordelandhalle in Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany, WBC interim-middleweight champion Sebastian Zbik (29-0, 10 KOs) pulled out a twelve round unanimous decision over Domenico Spada (30-3, 15 KOs) in their rematch. The scores were 117-110, 116-111 and 116-111.

Last year's fight had Zbik winning a close unanimous decision with scores of 115-114 on all three cards. Some thought Spada may have been robbed. There was no dispute in Saturday's rematch. Zbik's boxing ability, speed and accurate punching dominated most of the action with Spada being overwhelmed a bit in the second half.

In the co-feature, Robert Stieglitz (38-2, 23 KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Eduard Gutknecht (18-1, 7 KOs) to retain the WBO super middleweight title. The scores were 119-108, 117-111 and 117-110. Stieglitz was too strong for Gutknecht, who tried to fight fire with fire in the early rounds. As the fight played out, Stieglitz's power took over and it began to wear the challenger down. Stieglitz tried to push for a knockout in the championship rounds, but Gutknecht was very durable.

On the undercard, cruiserweight prospect and 2008 Olympic gold medal winner Rakhim Chakhkiev (4-0, 4 KOs) stopped Rene Huebner (25-16-2, 11 KOs) in the fifth round.

Flyweight prospect Pal Bedak (6-0, 4 KOs) won a six round unanimous decision over Edgar Jimenez (8-3-1, 6 KOs). The scores were 59-55, 59-55, 59-55.

Cruiserweight contender Mateusz Masternak (19-0, 14 KOs) stopped Marco Heinichen (11-23-2, 6 KOs) in two rounds.

Featherweight prospect Marcel Meyerdiercks (16-0, 5 KOs) dominated Emiliano Salvini (13-11-1, 2 KOs) over ten rounds to win a unanimous decision. The scores were 98-92, 98-92 and 98-93.

It's a joke to call Zbik-Spada a title fight. Anyone who watched Martinez-Pavlik would see neither Zbik nor Spada would be anything more than sparing partners to a real champion

comment by Tiozzo, on 04-17-2010
If both Pavlik and Bute win their bouts tonight, I hope Pavlik will fight Williams and I would like to see Bute against Stieglitz. It is unlikely since Bute is now a HBO fighter and that Robert isn't well known in America, still, it would be a good scrap, and since it is a unification match, it w...
