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.
