2000-06-03 Sven Ottke w pts 12 Tocker Pudwill, Europa Hall, Karlsruhe, Germany - IBF. Referee: Rafaele Argiolis. Scorecards: 119-107, 118-107, 119-106. Although the opening six rounds were relatively even it was more to do with the champion not working to his maximum ability rather than Pudwill (167) extending him. Pudwill, who survived a badly cut scalp following an accidental clash of heads in the first session and had been shaken up by a left-right to the jaw in the fifth, was still there in the seventh when being deducted a point for illegal use of the head. It was totally one-sided thereafter, with Pudwill being forced to endure counts in the ninth and tenth after Ottke (166½) landed heavily with lefts and rights before making it to the final bell.
