Turkish super middleweight Avni “Mr. Robot” Yildirim (21-1-0) outpointed experienced Lolenga Mock (42-15-1) to keep WBC super middleweight title at the Friedrich-Ebert-Halle in Ludwigshafen, Germany.

Yildirim and Mock gave their hearts in the ring. Both fighters fought clean without hugging and delivered the entertaining slugfest they promised before the bout.

Yildirim started fast and knocked down Mock in the first round. Later rounds, Mock also showed his effective hooks and impressed with his stamina. At the end of eleventh round punch percentage was 36% Yildirim and 27% Mock. After a close and tough fight,Yildirim won the bout by majority decision (113-112,116-111 and 113-113).


WBC super middleweight champion David Benavidez and Yildirim traded trash taking barbs on social media in the past few weeks.

Here’s what two fighters had to say about each other in social media site; Avni Yildirim: I’m coming for you Benavidez! David Benavidez: Be careful what you wish for, I m gonna knock you out.

Yildirim has been working with Mike Tyson’s former coach Stacey McKinley. Turkish prospect aims to be the first ever Turkish world champion in pro boxing.

German super middleweight Vincent Feigenbutz (29-2-0) dominated and stopped at the fifth round, Yusuf Kangul (16-3-1), and kept the Global Boxing Union Intercontinental super middleweight title.

[QUOTE=nick_viking;19102492]Dude got stopped by Eubank Jr, he isn’t worrying Benavidez.[/QUOTE] 'stopped' is an understatement - the guy was beaten, broken, humiliated, brutalised and violated by Eubank Jr. It was a relentless assault
