It wasn't the busiest of weekends in the world of boxing, but there were some good fightcards out there and on this occasion, we're going to work backwards through time.
We start off on Sunday at Challenge Stadium in Perth, Australia, where hometown sensation Danny Green finally managed to cage a full fledged world title by outpointing WBA Light Heavy strap holder Stipe Drews over twelve rounds.
Having tasted the hard punching Green's power, Drews mostly danced away from the action for the duration of the contest, stopping to fight only in the twelfth and final frame, losing his belt during his first defense and dropping to 32-2 (13). Green, a former interim WBC Super Middle titlist, improves to 25-3 (22), and could be in line for unification bouts with Zsolt Erdei, Clinton Woods or Chad Dawson.
On the undercard, Commonwealth Feather king Jackson Asiku, 22-3 (12), turned back challenger Matt Powell, 10-4-2 (3), in four rounds while lightweight William Kickett, 8-0 (4), graduated from prospect class with a hard fought eight round points win over two time world featherweight title challenger Tommy Browne, 23-5-1 (8).
On to Saturday, where at the Anhalt Arena in Dessau, Germany, top Womens super middle Natascha Ragosina, 16-0 (11), added a fifth world title belt to her collection by posting a unanimous decision over Akondaye Fountain, 7-1-1 (4).
