Marco Huck was gifted a win after some hometown judging saw him take a 115 - 113, 115 - 113, 117 - 111 unanimous decision to defend his WBO World Cruiserweight Championship.
Firat Arslan was the unlucky challenger who appeared to have comfortably been the better, cleaner fighter for the entirety of the contest. Though Huck is unquestionably an exciting fighter, the only real boxing skill on display came from the 42-year-old challenger.
But, as we saw against Ola Afolabi and Denis Lebedev, Huck was handed another lucky victory with generous judging of the fight in his favour.
A win at cruiserweight sets Huck up for another step up to heavyweight for a World title shot at Wladimir Klitschko, should the Ukrainian prevail against Mariusz Wach.
It's another tasty Sauerland card brought to you live and exclusive by BoxNation. Topping the bill is local favourite and reigning WBO World Champ Marco Huck, who is after yet another defence of his strap against fellow German Firat Arslan.
The Gerry Weber Stadium will be packed to the rafters for this one, as the 32 - 5 - 2 seasoned campaigner Arslan, 42, will fight southpaw-style and look to give his 27-year-old opponent an uncomfortable evening.
Arslan is a former WBA World Champion at cruiserweight, winning the title in 2007 at the ripe age of 37, and he's not to be underestimated by Huck, 15 years his junior.
It's a story almost as old as boxing itself. The young, energetic champion facing a wily, experienced challenger.
While Huck, 6ft 2in, will look to assert and pick off his opponent with his, now trademark, combative style, the 5ft 11in Arslan will look to hold him in close, do the dirty work on the inside and snatch a result.
Huck will bring a 34 - 2- 1 record into the ring as is now back fighting at cruiserweight after narrowly losing to Alexander Povetkin at heavyweight with a majority decision in February.
