Dimitrenko Protest Approved, Last Fight Changed To DQ Win

by Per Ake Persson

The German Federation - the BDB - have acted upon an official protest from EC Boxing and heavyweight Alexander Dimitrenko - and changed the result in the fight Dimitrenko (41-3, 26 KOs) had against Miljan Rovcanin (18-1) on December 22 in Hamburg.

The outcome was changed from a draw to a win for Dimitrenko - and now Rovcanin suffers his first career defeat.

The reason for the change is that Rovcanin had a total of three points deducted - two in the third and one in the seventh during the fight - and according with the BDB rules he should have been disqualified in the seventh when the third point deduction was made.

It´s an important win for Dimitrenko, who is mandatory challenger for the EBU title held by fellow German Agit Kabayel.

[QUOTE=ESAU;18394662]If I'm not mistaken, didn't Dimitrenko recently beat somebody he was heavily favored not to? At this point, he's basically a journeyman - a good opponent to give an up and comer experience, especially against a taller guy.. Or a…

[QUOTE=KillaCamNZ;18394741]Sums it up. I lost a lot of respect for him after the acting up he did in the Parker fight - he didn't want to be in the ring at all, then cried and complained afterwards. At this stage,…

Dimitrenko is a cry baby, has no heart and will lose his next fight by KO

[QUOTE=joe strong;18393636]That was a terrible performance by Dimitrenko regardless of the result. The ref was even annoyed by Dimitrenko & his dive he took after getting barely tapped after a break was called. He went down like he got shot…
