WBA light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer (44-2, 32 KOs) scored an uneventful 12 round unanimous decision over Argentina's Roberto Bolonti (35-3, 24 KOs) on Saturday night at the Sport und Kongresshalle in Schwerin, Germany.

Southpaw Braehmer, fighting in his hometown, had it mostly his own way but he never came close to stopping Bolonti. 

Scores were 118-109, 119-108, 119-108.

Also on the card, former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion David Price (18-2, 15 KO’s) won a 10 round unanimous decision over Yaroslav Zavorotnyi (16-6, 14 KOs) by scores of 97-92, 100-90, 98-92.  

Price appeared to hurt Zavorotnyi with a body shot in the 3rd and a hard right hand to the head in the 7th. 

Price spent a lot of time pawing with his jabs and loading up with right hands to the head and body.

Zavorotnyi did a good job of smothering Price’s offense by clinching him at every opportunity.


Former cruiserweight champion Firat Arslan (34-7-2, 21 KOs) scored an 8 round unanimous decision over Tamas Bajzath (9-11-1, 5 KOs).

Arslan dropped Bajzath in the final round.
