25.10 Kessler KO 3 Häussler

October 25, Oldenburg, Germany:
WBA supermiddle champ Mikkel Kessler retained the title in style with a third round knockout over brave but outclassed German challenger Danilo Haussler. Kessler landed with a combination finishing it with a hard right and a devastating left. Haussler went down and referee Stanley Christodoulou waved it over when Danilo´s chiefcornerman and longtime trainer Manfred Wolke entered the ring. Time of the stoppage was 1.08. Kessler had won the two completed rounds scoring with hard jabs and Haussler´s already battleworn face began to swell already after the first few punches. After the second he looked as he had been through a long, hard fight and one could tell the end was near.
The Viking Warrior is now 41-1 and it will take one hell of a fighter to beat him. For Haussler it was the end of the line. He was far from great but his strength, determination and conditioning took him a long way.
EBU cruiser champ Marco Huck stopped Italian challenger Fabio Tuiach in the second scoring two knockdowns. Huck had his opponent in trouble already in the first and opened up in the second.
Alexander Abraham was too strong for late sub Roman Dzhuman from Ukraine who was stopped in the sixth. Dzhuman was down in the fifth and under pressure when it was stopped. The vacant EE-EU jr middle title was at stake.
Cuban cruiser Yoan Pablo Hernandez was down in the seventh but won a majority decision after eight over American Michael Simms. It was close and hardfought all the way in this all southpaw clash.
First Lady, Cecilia Braekhus floored Bulgarian Borislava Goranova twice but had to settle for a points win after six.
News: Russian heavy Alexander Povetkin is sidelined with a foot injury and his fight against Wladimir Klitschko set for December 13 will be postponed.
