Maskaev Decisions Defiagbon

23.07.04 - Heavyweight Oleg Maskaev showed some of his old form tonight, earning a split decision over previously unbeaten David Defiagbon (21-1) in a 10 round bout. It was the 7th straight victory for 35 year old Maskaev (29-6, 24 Koís), who had previously been a top heavyweight contender until suffering three knockout losses within a two year period. Maskaev was the stronger puncher throughout the 10 round bout and had Defiagbon on the run. Maskaev knocked Defiagbon down with a big right hand in the 6th round, and appeared to have him hurt again in the 10th. However, despite Maskaevís strong performance, one judge still shockingly had it 95-94 for Defiagbon. The other scores were 98-92, 96-93 for Maskaev.
