Anthony Ogogo, Charlie Edwards Win Big in Germany

By Alexey Sukachev

Berlin, Germany - 2012 British Olympic bronze medalist Anthony Ogogo (11-0, 7 KOs) fights disappointingly scarcely nowadays but when he does he looks refreshingly exciting. This time it was easy to shine as his Czech opponent Bronislav Kubin (19-21-2, 12 KOs) was seen on the canvas by far more frequently than in the upright position. Kubin, 37 and badly mismatched, was down twice in the first and four times in the second round before the stoppage. Ogogo, 27, is now 3-0, 3 KOs, since May, which followed a long period of sporadic fighting.

English flyweight champion Charlie Edwards (8-0, 3 KOs), just a year and a half into his boxing career, has already got a huge opportunity to put his name in historic books on September 10, when he takes on a three-time two-division champion Jhon Riel Casimero in what seems to be an extremely ambitious leap up in class. A unanimous decision over Nicaraguan Jose Aguilar (16-26-4, 6 KOs) over six warm-up rounds will do very little in terms of preparation for an entirely different level of fighting, and we shall see what Edwards is made of only in eight weeks. Edwards vs. Casimero will be a part of a huge night of boxing at O2 Arena in London, crowned by a megafight between Gennady Golovkin and Kell Brook.

A multi-division and multi-title world champion Ramona Kuehne (25-1, 10 KOs) stopped ambitious rookie Ikram Kerwat (6-1, 5 KOs) from Tunisia by way of Germany in five one-sided rounds of a bid for a vacant WBA international lightweight female title.

---------------------

German light middleweight Sebatian Formella (13-0, 8 KOs) had to work hard en route for a close eight-round unanimous decision over Germany-based Bosnian Nico Salzmann (17-8-3, 3 KOs), also known as Nijaz Salkic. Salkic/Salzmann has lost for the first time since his comeback to the ring in 2013 after five years off it.

---------------------

2012 German Olympian Stefan Haertel has yet to score a knockout (two year into his pro career) but at least he show enoug pop to put his Argentinean opponent Mateo Damian Veron (24-18-3, 7 KOs) down once in the second round to get a comfortable unanimous decision over eight one-sided but tenacious rounds. Haertel is now 11-0, no knockouts.

---------------------

Liberia-born British welterweight Freddy Kiwitt improved his record to 10-0, 5 KOs, following an impressive second-round kayo of Ukrainian journeyman Igor Faniyan (15-12-3, 7 KOs).

---------------------

Another German rising cruiserweight Alexander Peil (5-0, 2 KOs) stopped an upset-minded Ukrainian veteran Igor Pilipenko (5-28-2, 1 KO) within four rounds of action.
