By Per Ake Persson

Copenhagen, Denmark - WBC super lightweight champion Erica Anabella Farias (22-1, 10KOs) win a ten round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Klara Svensson (15-1, 5KOs). The scores were 98-92, 96-93 and 96-94. Svensson went down in the fifth round.

Super middleweight contener Patrick Nielsen (25-1, 12KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over Ruben Acosta (30-12). All three judges saw it 99-91 across the board.

Super middleweight contender Bernard Donfack (21-12) stunned Oscar Ahlin (12-1, 10KOs) to win an eight round unanimous decision. The scores were 77-74, 76-75 and 77-74.

Howard Cospolite (12-4) shocked Abdul Khattab (11-1, 3KOs) with a fifth round knockout.

Heavyweight Otto Wallin (11-0, 9KOs) knocked out  Beka Lobjanidze (11-2) in four rounds.

Light heavyweight Alexander Hagen (7-1) outscored Latvian Oleg Fedotovs (19-21) over six one-sided rounds with little drama. Hagen found a home for his straight right but Fedotovs managed to ride with the punch and was at no time hurt or stunned. It was scored 60-54 on all cards.

Super middleweight Simen Smaadal (10-1) from Norway beat Ukrainan veteran Vladimir Borovskyy (21-59-2) on a unanimous decision after four. Smaadal went almost all out from the beginning and floored Borovskyy in the second but after the knockdown the veteran woke up, went to work, and showed glimpses of the capable, tricky fighter he once was. The Norwegian had a tough time in the third and fourth. It was scored 39-36 twice and 38-37. I agreed on 38-37. Smaadal received a check from one of his sponsors for 100 000 Norwegian kronas.

Super lightweight Rashid "The Dream" Kassem (8-0) opened Sauerland Promotion´s show at Frederiksberghallerne with a second round knockout over Croatian Ante Nakic (2-4). Kassem, a flashy, fast fighter, opened up in the second and got his opponent under pressure and it ended with a knockdown. Nakic, willing but green, got up and tried to counter but walked into a heavy right and went down again and was counted out in the act of rising at 2.10. It was scheduled for six.

With Cecilia Braekhus leaving Sauerland Boxing, this leaves them with Svensson. But last nite proved Svensson has a long way to go before she can replace the star power of The First Lady of Boxing.
