Aranda Outscores Schulze in Germany

By Per Ake Persson, at ringside

Oranienburg, Germany - Costa Rican Humberto Aranda took the fight on short notice, but was in good shape and easily outscored local hero Marco Schulze to win the IBF I/C 154 lb title. It was scored 118-110, 119-109 and 119-109. There were no knockdowns. Schulze said afterwards that "he was too fast and I was too slow" and that sums up the fight pretty well. Aranda boxed on the move with fast, light punches and when Schulze got close he switched to upercuts. The German could never get a hold of his slippery opponent.

Slovenian Jan Zaveck impressed in taking apart Austrian-based Chilean Joel Mayo. Mayo was stopped at 1.50 of the sixth due to bad cuts over the right eye. Belgian referee Andre van Grootenbuel ruled that an accidental headclash had caused the cut that led to the stoppage and it went to the scorcards. Zaveck was ahead by 60-54, 60-54 and 59-56 and had fought a good, disciplined fight, working with one-two combinations from the outside. Mayo tried to work his way on the inside but was outboxed and picked up the first cut in the third.

Jr. welterweight Sergey Sorokin looked good as he stopped fellow-Russian Nikita Zaitsev, who didn´t come out for the ninth due to bad cuts and swelling around both

German welterweight Marco Cattikas won a hard fought unanimous decision over Pole Adam Zadworny in an eight-rounder. Cattikas was badly cut in the second and Zadworny got going to make a fight of it. Marco was too strong though, won clearly but had to work hard for his win.

Middleweight Stephan Trabant returned after several years out and won over four against Latvian Sandris Tomson.

Ukrainian heavyweight Alexey Mazikin won every round over Frenchman Antoine Palatis in their six-rounder. Palatis looks every bit a fighter who should hang´em up.

Norwegians Nikita Dubunin and Andreas Evensen both scored victories over Polish opponents. Dubunin, at jr middleweight, beat Sebastian Wywalec, looked close to
stopping his opponent in the first but tried too hard and had to go the distance with a bad (12 stitches) cut. Evensen, a jr lightweight making his pro debut, was in
against Piotr Niesporek, and like Dubunin tried a little too hard to impress.

SES promoted and had sold out house with mainly Marco Schulze fans.
