Copenhagen, Denmark – WBC Youth cruiserweight champ Ditlev Rossing, 10-0, retained the title with a third round stoppage over game, but outclassed Argentinean Miguel Angel Peralta, 9-2. Peralta was floored late in the second and twice in the third before it was stopped at 2.18. It was scheduled for ten.
Rossing, trained by Sherman Williams, could possible have ended matters earlier but was too eager and that allowed “El Verdugo” to last a little longer.
Super welterweight Oliver Meng, 4-0, took out Georgian veteran Anzor Gamgebeli, 36-27-3, 45 seconds into the second round. Gamgebeli normally fights at lower weights and appeared to have no punch resistance. He was down twice in the first and again in the second before it was stopped.
Female featherweight Sarah Mahfoud, 7-0, put up a career best performance and clearly beat Stephane Ducastel, 8-5-2, from France over eight.
At the end it was scored 80-72 on all cards and Mahfoud fought a disciplined, tactical fight against an aggressive, technically limited opponent. Rating wise it was a big step up for Mahfoud as Ducastel, was rated WBC # 4, WBA # 5 and IBF # 12.
Super lightweight Enock M. Poulsen, 9-0, showed again he is an excellent prospect as he knocked out Spaniard Kelvin “La Perla Negra” Dotel, 13-4, at 2.35 of the fifth of a scheduled eight-rounder.
Poulsen landed with a right uppercut – left hook combination that put down Dotel, who got up and looked ready to continue but referee Soren Saugmann called it off. It looked a bit premature but Dotel had taken a beating in every round despite an all out attack.
But everything Kelvin did Enock did better and as it was Dotel was outboxed. Late in the first in a heated exchange Dotel was floored by a left hook – but if it was at the bell or after is open to dispute but the referee counted over Dotel.
