2001-06-09 Sven Ottke w rsc 11 Ali Ennebati, Frankenland Hall, Nuremberg, Germany - IBF. Referee: Arno Pokrandt. Successfully defending his title for the tenth time, Ottke (166½) won virtually every round before the fight was stopped in his favour at 2.28 of the 11th despite being up against a hard puncher who hurt him a several occasions, especially with rights to the head. By the end of the eighth it was clear that Ottke was lining himself up for the finish and in the ninth a terrific right to the body had Ennebati (165½) doubled up in pain. Having dominated the tenth, Ottke went all out in the 11th and after he had dropped Ennebati twice with heavy rights to the head the referee brought matters to a close.
