Wladimir Klitschko won a unanimous decision in his twelve round bout against previously unbeaten Pole Mariusz Wach in Hamburg. Unusually for Klitschko, he faced a taller fighter in Wach, but despite the Polish boxer’s toughness, Wladimir dominated with crunching blows to retain his IBF/WBO/IBO titles.

Sheffield's unbeaten welterweight Kell Brook had one of the toughest nights of his boxing career in front of his home town crowd. Kell started the bout strongly and showed a lot of class, dominating the early rounds, but Carson Jones dug deep and really battled in the later stages. In the eighth, blood was pouring from Brook's nose as the American pressed forward. Brook did enough to win however, with two judges scoring in his favour 116-113 and 115-113 with one judge calling the fight a draw.
