Interim WBA super middleweight champion Vincent Feigenbutz (21-2, 19 KOs) fell apart tonight in getting beaten by 31-year-old Italian Giovanni De Carolis (24-6, 12 KOs) by an 11th round technical knockout in their rematch at the Baden Arena in Offenburg, Germany. De Carolis, #14 WBA, unloaded on the 20-year-old Feigenbutz with a series of power shots in the 11th round to get the TKO victory. The fight was stopped by referee Gustavo Padilla at :32 of the round.
Feigenbutz probably should have taken a knee to try and clear his head after getting hurt, but he was too out of it to think clearly. Feigenbutz fought like he wasn’t thinking too clearly from the 1st round, as he let the fight get out of hand early with De Carolis getting off to a big lead in the first half of the fight by simply being the busier fighter. Feigenbutz came back a little bit in the 2nd half of the fight in throwing some nice power shots that connected. He was fighting more for survival at that point.
