By Per Ake Persson: September 9, Hamburg, Germany: Local middleweight Mahir Oral won the vacant EU 160 lb title with a first round stoppage of Dirk Dzemski after a short but explosive fight that saw both men on the floor. Oral came out fast and scored with jabs and a few right hands. Dzemski, a southpaw, countered with a right-left combination and Oral touched down and was given an eight-count by Spanish referee Jesus Morata Garcia.. As Dzemski came forward looking to follow up Oral landed with a hard right and Dirk went down on his back. Although he made it up he was hurt and as Oral poured it on trainer Werner Kirsch threw in the towel just as ref Morata Garcia was ready to step in. The time: 1.42. Promoter Ahmet Oener has already begun to bang the drum for a possible Oral vs Felix Sturm clash at the huge Color Line Arena.
On the undercard heavywight Goran Gogic knocked out the much smaller Hungarian veteran Zoltan Beres in the second. Beres, well over the hill as it is, have no business fighting as a heavy.
Adnan Serin outscored Vlado Szabo over six in another heavyweight clash.
Arena Box Promotion return November 11 with welter Alpaslan Aguzum on top. Mahir Oral will also be on the show.
