Tiozzo declaws Tiger!

Michalczewski stopped in sixth

Fabrice Tiozzo landed three hard punches that knocked down Dariusz Michalczewski in the sixth round. Michalczewski was able to continue, but the bout was stopped a few seconds later.  Tiozzo (Boxingtalk #8 coming in) retained his WBA light heavyweight title.  It was the first time the two-division world champ (currently Boxingtalk #6) was stopped in 51 pro bouts (he is 49-2). As a result of Tiozzo's win, the top three light heavyweights in the world are all 35 years of age or more: Tiozzo is 35 while Glen Johnson and Antonio Tarver are both 36. source: Associated Press

Sidorenko, Erdei also prevail on world title triple bill... On the same card, which drew 17,000 fans to the Color Line Arenea in Hamburg, Germany, Wladimir Sidorenko (Boxingtalk #13) won the WBA bantamweight title from Julio Zarate (Boxingtalk #7) by scores of 116-114, 117-112 and 118-111.  Also, Zsolt Erdei (Boxingtalk #3) retained the WBO lightweight title winning a rematch against Hugo Hernan Garay (Boxingtalk #18) by scores of 115-113, 116-112 and 118-111.  Erdei, who can dispute Tiozzo's claim of top three in the world, is the baby among the top light heavyweights at 30 years old. source: Universum website
