Helinius KOs Peter; Huck wins


By Karl Freitag


Unbeaten heavyweight Robert Helenius (15-0, 10 KOs) scored his biggest win with a spectacular ninth round knockout of former WBC heavyweight champion Samuel Peter (34-5, 27 KOs) on Saturday night at the Gerry Weber Stadium in Halle, Germany. The much taller Helinius mostly worked behind his jab, showing Peter a lot of respect early. Peter, who came in at a career hight 259.9, was the aggressor. That pattern changed in round nine when Helinius dropped Peter with a left hook, then laid him out for the count with his follow up attack. Time was 1:15. The fight was for both the WBA/WBO I/C belts.


In the main event, WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (32-1, 23 KOs) took a twelve round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Ran Nakash (25-1, 18 KOs). Nakash came right at Huck and applied continuous pressure, while Huck preferred to work at long range. Many rounds were competitive, but Huck did more and came away with a 118-110, 118-110, 116-112 win. Nakash replaced injured Giacobbe Fragomeni on late notice.


In a surprise, three-time European light heavyweight champion Thomas Ulrich (32-6, 22 KOs), now campaigning as a super middleweight, was stopped in round seven by little known Lithuanian Sergej Rozvadovskij (5-0-2, 4 KOs). Time was 1:49. Ulrich was down in round two and was never in the fight.


In a clash for the vacant EBU-EU light heavyweight belt, Artur Hein (14-1-1, 8 KOs) and Tony Averlant (15-5-2, 3 KOs) battled to a twelve round draw. Scores were 116-112 Hein, 115-113 Averlant and 114-114.


Unbeaten middleweight Dominik Britsch (22-0, 7 KOs) outpointed Jozsef Matolcsi (29-14, 20 KOs) over eight by scores of 78-71, 77-74 and 78-74. Good win for Britsch as Matolcsi has beaten former world title challenger Mahir Oral in his last fight.


Light heavyweight Dustin Dirks moved to 19-0, 13 KOs after a one-sided sixth round TKO against Roberto Cocco (10-8-1, 5 KOs).
