On the undercard to Wladimir Klitschko-Hasim Rahman at the SAP Arena in Germany, former undisputed heavyweight champion Riddick Bowe (43-1, 33 KOs) returned for the first time since April of 2005 and won an eight round unanimous decision over Gene Pukall (14-13-2, 12 KOs).
Bowe, 41, had been scheduled to return a number of times over the last few years, but either withdrew of no-showed the events. There were many doubts that he would actually show up to this fight. Pukall had lost three of his last four fights by knockout.
