In a fight televised in Germany which can be seen in its entirety on Youtube, unbeaten Cruiserweight Alexander Alexeev of Germany won his sixteenth consecutive bout with a third round stoppage of Rob Calloway of the United States. Alexeev moved forward with head and body shot combinations, putting pressure on Calloway and cutting off the ring.

Calloway arose and fought on, but was dropped again by two perfect lefts from Alexeev. The referee waved a halt to the contest with Calloway on the canvas at 2:34. Calloway was unbeaten in his last fourteen bouts in the United States, but remained winless in his bouts in Europe. Scheduled for 12.
