Brähmer defeats Bolonti; Price beats Zavorotnyi

WBA light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer (44-2, 32 KO’s) retained his WBA 175lb title with a 12 round unanimous decision win over Robert Bolonti (35-3, 24 KO’s) on Saturday night in a largely one-sided decision at the Sport and Congress Center, Schwerin, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany.

Braehmer did little more than jab and grab for 12 rounds to get an easy win over Bolonti. Braehmer didn’t have to worry about anything big coming back at him because Bolonti didn’t have the power or the size to make a fight of it. He looked like an averaged size middleweight trying to fight at an aging light heavyweight in 35-year-old Braehmer.

The final judges’ scores reflected the mismatch with the judges scoring it 118-109, 119-109 and 119-108. Continue reading
