    In the co-feature, heavyweight Konstantin Airich (14-2-2, 11 KOs) scored a second round stoppage over Alexander Kahl (15-5-1, 13 KOs).

    Heavyweight Timo Hoffmann (39-7-1, 23 KOs) returned from a one year layoff with a brutal two round annihilation of Harry Duiven Jr. (14-7-1, 12 KOs) under the stars on Friday night in Aschersleben, Germany. The 35-year-old "German Oak"Â￾ dropped Duiven with a big right hand in round two. Duiven beat the count, but Hoffmann soon caught the reeling Duiven on the ropes and leveled him again. The bout was waved off by referee Jürgen Langos at 1:59.

    Last Saturday Krzysztof Zimnoch scored a 3rd round knockout over Michael Moncrief 3-5-1. Zimnoch improves to 3-0-1(3).

    Fedosov lost via split decision [​IMG] According to reports, Fedosov did well in the early rounds, even scored a knockdown in the fifth but tired down the stretch. Edited by: Blue Devils

    It may have been a robbery. According to this report, the crowd didn't like the decision.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was a robbery. With all the talented white fighters recently many are getting robbed to allow some bruthas to break through.

    "...One judge scored the bout 115-112 in favor of Fedosov, while the other two judges scored the bout 115-112 and 114-113 in favor of Whitaker. Fightnews.com scored the bout 117-110 in favor of Fedosov.

    After the decision was announced, most of the crowd loudly booed the decision, believing that Fedosov did enough to win the fight."

    The fight was in California so we know there was some home cooking. European fighters never get fair decisions in the states. Take the Calzaghe-Hopkins fight for example. Calzaghe won almost every round yet was only given a split decision win with the negro judge Byrd of course being the one judge that gave the fight to Hopkins. He could have easily been robbed in that fight. Byrd did give the fight to Adamek when he fought Cunningham at the Prudential Center but any other result on her behalf would have been extremely controversial considering Adamek knocked Cunningham down three times and the fight was in Tomasz's backyard.

    McCall must be in his mid 40s by now.

    On July 17, Christian Hammer (7-1, 4 KOs, age 22) will take on Mariusz Wach (21-0, 9 KOs, age 30) according to fightnews.com.

    For some reason the 6'7" Wach has been inactive since April 2009.

    This is a competitive heavyweight matchup and a good addition to the Brahmer-Lakatos and Alexeev-Lebedev undercard. [​IMG]

    Airich-Saglam is quite an interesting matchup. Saglam has been fighting very weak opposition up until now.

    Zimnoch beat Ziausys on points over four rounds. A week later he stopped Abdelhadi Hanine in the second round. Zimnoch's record currently stands at 6-0-1(5) [​IMG]

    Gerber stopped Lee Swaby in the fourth round. Swaby holds a win over a green Enzo Maccarinelli. Gerber is scheduled to fight Colin Kenna 16-11-3(7) tomorrow in England.

    Airich was stopped by late sub Gbenga Oloukun [​IMG] It's a shame the Turk pulled out. I thought Airich had a good chance against him.

    Mariusz Wach 22-0(10) fights Galen Brown 33-14-1(20) tonight in Rhode Island.

    Pala stopped Solmaz in the third round. Pala improves to 28-2(20).

    From Fightnews

    Heavyweight prospect Andriy Rudenko (20-0, 12 KOs) won a unanimous eight round decision over Isroil Kurbanov (6-6-1, 1 KOs). The Ukrainian continuously applied pressure and threw many power shots. In round five Rudenko brutally battered Kurbanov, who miraculously didn't go down. Scores were 80-73, 79-73, 80-72. Fightnews.com scored it 80-72.

    I like Wach. He has decent skills but I don't think he's a A level heavyweight. He hasn't fought any of the top competition in the division.

    Heavyweight Ondrej Pala (29-2, 21 KOs) won by TKO when Oleksiy Mazykin (16-6-2, 3 KOs) didn't come out for round eight. Pala was in command all the way in winning the WBO Euro belt.

    Brainwashed fans say that Denis Boytsov hasn't beat any top heavyweight, but he stopped Pala.
    And Pala is better than anybody David Haye beaten in his career.

    Denis Boytsov is the future of the heavyweight division! Strong as an ox, maybe the fastest hands in the division... incredibly technically sound. He will be a champion before long. Book it.
