Robert Stieglitz Gets KO, Masson Retains, Schwarz Wins, More

By Per Ake Persson

EBU flyweight champion Thomas Masson (15-3-1) retained the title last night in Arras (France) with a unanimous decision over Spanish challenger Angel Moreno (10-2-2). After twelve rounds of boxing it was scored 117-111 twice and 115-113 for the champion. Next up for Masson should be a mandatory defence against veteran Valery Yanchy (25-4-2).


French cruiserweight Arsen Goulamirian (15-0) stopped Czech Lubos Suda (34-11-1) in the very first round to win the vacant WBA International title last night in Corbeil-Essonnes.

In the co-feature Belgian super welterweight Islam Teffahi (19-5-2) kept the Francophone bauble with a majority points win over Frenchman Karrim Merroudj (15-6-2).



In Pilsen (Czech Republic) yesterday, German heavyweight Tom Schwarz (16-0) had it easy against beefed up Georgian cruiser Gorgita Gorgiladze (billed as 28-11) and floored him twice and won on a first round knockout in what was a defence of the WBO Youth title. Gorgiladze have a as a cruiser gone the distance with the likes of Micki Nielsen and Noel Gevor but fighting a big heavyweight like Schwarz is a different thing.

On the same show Czech super welterweight Stepan Horvath (16-5) won the vacant WBO Euro title by beating German-based Italian Davide Doria (13-2-1).

Former WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz, 49-5-1 and now campaigning as a light heavyweight, stopped Argentinian Ricardo Marcelo Ramallo (20-9-1) late in the fifth of a scheduled eight rounder. Stieglitz dominated the action and hurt his opponent with bodyshots and the towel came in with Ramallo complaining of a headbutt but it was a left hook downstairs that did the damage.
