Results from last week where a title was on the line

Friday night, the current WBC minimum-weight champ and pride of the Trang’s Rassada District of Thailand, Oleydong Sithsamerchai, received a major scare when he was almost upset by fellow countryman Pornsawan Porpramook.

Sportpark Arena, Ljubljana, Slovenia
Jan Zaveck vs. Rafal Jackiewicz (IBF welterweight championship) “I’m extremely disappointed with my performance,” said Polish welterweight contender Rafal Jackiewicz (36-9-1, 18 KOs) after his majority decision loss to IBF welterweight champion Jan Zaveck (30-1, 17 KOs) on Saturday night at the Sportpark Arena in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Jackiewicz, the only fighter who has ever defeated Zaveck (in 2008), continued “Everything was great before I stepped into ring. Three months of great training camp, perfect conditioning, perfect sparring sessions and I thought best fight disposition in my life. Those 12,000 plus fans cheering for Jan did not influence the way I was boxing. I just didn’t do what we worked on all those tough, hard months with my training staff.”

Lanxess-Arena, Cologne, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany
WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm (34-2-1, 14 KOs) won a 12 round unanimous decision over Giovanni Lorenzo (29-3, 21 KOs) on Saturday night at the Lanxess-Arena in Cologne, Germany.

Lorenzo came on strong down the stretch, but it was too little too late as Sturm prevailed 117-111, 117-111, 118-111.
