31st March 2012
Germany's "King" Arthur Abraham retains his WBO European Super Middleweight crown with a unanimous decision win over Piotr "The Wilk" Wilczewski before a home crowd.
The 32-year-old champ simply overwhelmed his Polish opponent, with the judges scores of 119 - 108, 118 - 109, 118 - 109 signifying Abraham's comfort and domination.
Wilczewski did put up an energetic and brave performance, but much of his work off the front food either missed or was parried away by the commanding champion.
In the seventh, the Pole was deducted a point after a questionable looking incident for apparently holding on too frequently.
But, ultimately, this point didn't make the difference as Abraham put in a confident champion's display, holding a stern defence and high hands throughout the contest.
33 - 3 reigning WBO European Super Middleweight Champion Arthur Abraham defends his crown for the first time, after winning it in January 2012 against Pablo Oscar Natalio Farias.
