2001-09-01 Sven Ottke w pts 12 James Butler, Borderland Hall, Magdeburg, Germany - IBF. Referee: Randy Neumann. Scorecards: 118-109, 118-109, 119-108. Despite posing a threat throughout the fight with big rights to the head, Butler (167½) was unable to get himself going until the sixth round against a champion who knew too much for him and gave him little opportunity. Although still being outmanoevered by Ottke (167½), Butler finally threw caution to the wind in the last three sessions in an effort to turn things round, only to have a point docked from his total for rabbit punching in the 12th. A wide winner, Ottke’s speed was supplemented with good footwork, accurate jabs and solid combinations.
