Former three-time middleweight champion and IBF #3 Felix Sturm (38-3-2, 17 KOs) scored an impressive fourth round KO over previously unbeaten #4 Predrag Radosevic (27-1, 9 KOs) in an IBF eliminator on Saturday night at the Westfalenhalle in Dortmund, Germany. Sturm showed his class as he dominated his less experienced opponent. The former champ dropped Radosevic in round three and twice more in round four. Radosevic’s corner then threw in the towel. Time was 2:17. Body shots were the key for Sturm, who is now mandatory challenger for IBF champion Daniel Geale.
Light heavyweight Konni Konrad 19-1, 9 KOs) won a twelve round majority decision over late sub Bernard Donfack (16-11-3, 8 KOs). Scores were 116-111, 115-112, 113-113. Konrad was originally slated to face power-punching Edison Miranda, but Miranda weighed in four pounds over the contracted weight and was replaced.
“Killer Queen” Susi Kentikian (31-2, 16 KOs) regained the WBA flyweight crown and avenged her loss against Californian Carina Moreno (23-5, 6 KOs) with a ten round unanimous decision. Scores were 96-94, 97-93, 97-93.
Jr middleweight Maurice Weber (18-1-1, 5 KOs) scored a first round KO over journeyman Aliaksandr Abramenka (17-37-1, 6 KOs).
