2003-09-06 [[Sven Ottke]] w pts 12 [[Mads Larsen]], Fair Hall, Erfurt, Germany - IBF/WBA. Referee: Pete Podgorski. Scorecards: 115-113, 115-113, 114-114. Facing a southpaw for the first time, initially the champion had some difficulty in fathoming Larsen (167½) out, but with good footwork and classy countering, especially with rights to the body, he began to get on top. It had been expected that the hard-hitting Larsen would show more in the middle sessions, but he continued to miss wildly at times and there was only one winner at the final bell. Once again, Ottke (168) had proved to be the master of just doing enough to win.
