Braehmer, Chagaev, Chakhkiev, Boytsov Secure Wins

By Per Ake Persson

Hamburg, Germany, Grand Elysee Hotel - Former WBO light heavyweight champion Jürgen Bräehmer (37-2, 30 KOs) returned to the ring with a fourth round stoppage of José Maria Guerrero (29-3-1, 11 KOs). He dropped Guerrero with a left hand in the second. A bad cut suffered by Guerrero would end the fight in the fourth.

Cruiserweight contender Rakhim Chakhkiev (12-0, 9 KOs) got his biggest win to date with a ten round unanimous decision over Alexander Kotlobay (21-3-1, 15 KOs), winning the WBC's Baltic belt. Chakhkiev dropped Kotlobay in the third, but couldn't finish him off. The scores were 100-89, 100-189, 99-89.

It took undefeated Russian heavyweight Denis Boytsov (30-0, 25KOs) a few rounds to find the range but when he did it was all over and he took out Darnell Wilson (24-14) with a straight right to the head 45 seconds into the fourth. It was scheduled for eight. Boytsov dominated the action from the beginning but Wilson was a difficult target.
Former WBA heavyweight champ Ruslan Chagaev (28-2, 17KOs) floored Kertson Manswell (22-4) in the eight and final round for a clear win. Chagaev had Manswell stunned several times with his fine southpaw left but the Trinidadian escaped turned sideways to his opponent.

Former WBA cruiserweight king Firat Arslan (32-5, 21KOs) stopped Argentinian Orlando Antonio Faris (23-11) in two of a scheduled ten-rounder. Farias went down twice from southpaw left hooks to the body and was under pressure against the ropes when stopped.
Raul Bejaran (14-1, 6KOs) won the vacant WBO European middleweight title with a unanimous decision over Daniel Urbanski (21-7), who was down in the last round. It was scored 116-111, 117-110 and 120-107. Bejaran dominated the action but couldn´t get to the Pole until the final round.
Ina Menzer (27-1, 10KOs) outscored Milena Koleva (3-4) after a rather drab eight rounder (over two minute rounds).

Featherweight Marcel Mayerdiercks (21-0, 5KOs) outscored Brazlian Roberto Santos de Jesus (13-5) over eight.
Former WBC jr light champ Vitali Tajbert (22-2, 6KOs) won clearly over Venezuelan Jose Luis Graterol (14-11) but was from his best in this eight-round bout. The scores were 78-74, 79-73 and 78-76.

Universum's big show opened up with heavyweight Vladimir Tereshkin (14-0-1, 7KOs) winning on a disqualification in the fifth round over Evgeny Orlov (13-11), a giant of a man at about 150 kg/330 lbs. Orlov used everything in the book, plus a little more, and had the tiring Tereshkin under pressure when the fight was after three points deductions.
