2000-12-16 [[Sven Ottke]] w pts 12 [[Silvio Branco]], Europa Hall, Karlsruhe, Germany - IBF. Referee: Arno Pokrandt. Scorecards: 117-111, 117-111, 116-112. Despite not boxing at his best the champion worked much harder than Branco (167¾), who was out of sorts for much of the time and unable to take advantage of opportunities that presented themselves. Even then the scores did Branco a disservice according to ''Boxing News''. The trade paper made the point that if Ottke’s pushing, pulling and hitting with the inside of the glove had been cut out the scoreline should have been much closer. In his last contest Branco had beaten England’s [[Robin Reid]], but he failed to use his left hand enough while ultimately allowing Ottke (168) to steal rounds as he did in the first, third, seventh and eighth.
