2003-06-14 [[Sven Ottke]] w pts 12 [[David Starie]], Borderland Hall, Magdeburg, Germany - IBF/WBA. Referee: Randy Neumann. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-113, 115-113. Although the decision was unanimous in the champion’s favour had Starie (168) upped his work rate, especially in the middle rounds, the result could have been very different. Once again Ottke (167½) boxed in a conservative fashion, doing what he had to in order to keep ahead, picking his punches and using the left hook well on the inside. The last three sessions saw Starie finally take more risks, outpunching Ottke three to one in the 11th, but the German continued to work on the outside as if he knew the fight was already his.
