Weekend Boxing Results – Sky Sports, FSN, ARD

Friday

Liverpool (Sky Sports)
Paul Smith (29-1) UD-12 over Tony Dodson (24-6)
Smith was badly cut from the opening round, but survived to see out the decision in a rough main event.

Kell Brook (21-0) TKO 6 of Krzysztof Bienias (39-4)
Brook is probably the best up and coming fighter in Britain. He was way too much for Bienias; who has had success at a certain level, but fares poorly when stepped up in class. In the post fight interview, Promoter Frank Warren called out Amir Khan on Brook’s behalf. Khan had previously been Warren’s top star, but Khan abandoned him in favour of a deal with Goldenboy.

Tony Bellew (13-0) TKO 1 over Atoli Moore(4-1)
The hard punching Bellew wasted little time finishing off his outmatched opponent.

Enzo Maccarinelli (31-4) TKO 1 of Zoltan Czekus (8-3)
The former WBO Cruiserweight champion continues to rebuild his career with an easy win over a complete unknown.

Sam Peter vs. Vitali Klitschko is odd as Klitschko hasn’t fought in years and Peter has to defend his belt in Germany. Craziness has to ensue.

Sam Peter vs. Vitali Klitschko

It’s for Peter’s WBC heavyweight championship.

Either Showtime’s signal is a little hot, or Michael Buffer fell asleep in the tanning booth.

1st Round

Klitschko is holding his left hand really low. He’s throwing a left hook right hand combination. Peter is trying to get inside, but is getting hit and knocked off balance. Good first round for Klitschko.

2nd Round
