Karo Murat Shocks Dominic Boesel To Capture EBU Title

Ballsport Arena in Dresden, Germany - Karo Murat (30-3-1, 19 KOs) is right back in the mix after scoring an upset eleventh round stoppage over previously undefeated Dominic Boesel (24-1, 9 KOs) to capture the light heavyweight European (EBU) title.

Boesel was highly ranked under the WBO, WBA and IBF. Sitting at number two under the WBO, he was getting close to a world title shot opportunity.

The contest saw Murat bring the fight to Boesel from the very start and was looking to test the stamina and the heart of his opponent in the early going.

Boesel was able to make some adjustments and began to fire back on equal footing after fight press forward into the second half.

But during the eleventh Boesel was badly hurt and began to get battered as the referee jumped in to wave things off.

Murat has now won four in a row since suffering a knockout loss at the hands of Sullivan Barrera in a world title eliminator back in December 2015.

For Boesel, this was his second fight of the year, with a TKO victory over Sami Enborn in March, and he also stayed busy in 2016 with three big wins. Boesel averaged at least three or more fights per year.

Good to see Murat win. Boesel a classic example of a German fighter rated ridiculously high despite beating absolutely nobody because he has a good promoter. He shouldn't be in anyone's top 20, while Murat has fought legit opposition
