Germany's Vitali Tajbert, who previously lost his bid for the European super featherweight title to Sergey Gulyakevich, wins the WBC interim super featherweight title in a major upset over Mexican southpaw Humberto Mauro Gutierrez, who had beaten Gulyakevich to win this title. Tajbert, 19-1, 6 KOs, 2004 Olympic Bronze medalist, was the better boxer, using his left jab to win most rounds on points. With this win, Tajbert won the right to face champion Humberto Soto of Mexico for the full version of the WBC super featherweight title in early 2010.
