Frankfurt, Germany

  • Fedor Chudinov SD-12 Felix Sturm: Scores were 116-112, 116-112, and 110-118. Was that 118-110 card for Sturm the product of some rotten hometown German judge, corrupt to his very core, the true essence of blah blah blah? Not even close! Nevada's Robert Hoyle turned that one in. And so continue the seesaw golden years of Felix Sturm's career. Chudinov now holds the WBA "world" super middleweight title.
  • Jack Culcay UD-12 Maurice Weber: This was for the interim WBA title at 154 pounds. They have Floyd Mayweather as "super world" champ and Erislandy Lara as "world" champ, but they needed another champ.

Birmingham, England

  • Matthew Macklin KO-2 Sandor Micsko: Macklin is hopeful this win will put him back in line for a title shot. It shouldn't, but with boxing, it might.
  • Anthony Joshua KO-2 Raphael Zumbano Love: Love, who is not good at all, was easily outclassed by Joshua and knocked out on a massive right hand at 1:21 of round 2. Joshua is now 12-0 (12 KO) and will meet Kevin Johnson on May 30. Those two had a photo op bit in the ring after the fight.
  • Luke Campbell TKO-3 Aboubeker Bechelaghem: Somewhat lost in the heavyweight hype of Joshua has been Campbell, who has been about as good since turning pro, and is now 11-0 (9 KO).
  • Callum Smith TKO-1 Olegs Fedotovs: Nothing but a stay busy fight for Smith (16-0, 12 KO), and he's scheduled to return on June 26 against Christopher Rebrasse, who went 12 with George Groves in a losing effort last year.
  • Kal Yafai TKO-1 Isaac Quaye
  • Gamal Yafai PTS-8 Arnoldo Solano

London, England

  • Frank Buglioni D-10 Lee Markhan: Buglioni is sort of the Seanie Monaghan of England, he's got his fans that will pay to see him, and he's valuable for a promoter in that sense, but he's not really a fighter that figures to make serious waves.
  • Bradley Skeete RTD-6 Brunet Zamora: Skeete is now 20-1 (9 KO) with his second straight win after last November's loss to Frankie Gavin.
  • Mitchell Smith TKO-5 Cristian Palma

Kobe, Japan

  • Hozumi Hasegawa UD-10 Horacio Garcia: Hasegawa, 34, is still banging around, and has something left in the tank. Garcia came in undefeated, and is now 29-1 (21 KO). Garcia was also ranked 9th at featherweight by the WBC, which was certainly not a reflection of his quality competition. Scores were 100-90, 98-93, and 97-93.
