European light heavyweight champion Jürgen Brähmer (33-2, 27 KOs) needed just 83 seconds to annihilate mandatory challenger Antonio Brancalion (32-7-2, 8 KOs) on Saturday night at the König Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen. Brähmer, who is again rated WBA #1 contender, dropped Brancalion in the first few seconds and four times total in round one before the fight was waved off by referee Terry O’Connor. Brancalion entered at #11 in the WBA rankings. Euro king Brähmer is taking aim at a return match with WBA world champion Hugo Garay.
In a emotionally charged clash of heavyweight contenders who are also stablemates, Universum fighter WBA #5 Denis Boytsov (25-0, 20 KOs) impressively TKO’d WBA #2 ranked stablemate Taras Bidenko (26-3, 12 KOs) of Spotlight Boxing in round six. After a slow first round, the heavy hands of Boystov began to take their toll. The bout finally ended in round six after a brutal assault by Boystov put Bidenko on the deck. Time was 2:00. Boystov retained his WBA Intercontinental title and added the WBO Europa title.
Unbeaten heavyweight Manuel Charr (12-0, 6 KOs) scored a third round TKO over Ramon Hayes (15-27-1, 10 KOs).
Lightweight Vitali Tajbert (18-1, 6 KOs) returned to action after his loss to Euro champ Sergey Gulyakevich to outpoint Rudy Encarnacion (18-15-2, 8 KOs).
Unbeaten light heavyweight Igor Michalkin (10-0, 7 KOs) outpointed Karim Bennama (17-12-1, 4 KOs) over eight rounds.
