2009-01-10 : Denis Inkin 167 lbs lost to Karoly Balzsay 167 lbs by UD in round 12 of 12

In the main event of a fight card held at Bordelandhalle Arena in Magdelberg, Germany, Hungarian Karoly 'Hitter' Balszay won his twentieth consecutive bout and the WBO Super Middleweight title in an upset over 34-0 WBO champion Denis Inkin in a battle for the title previously held by Welshman Joe Calzaghe. Balszay, now 20-0 with 14 kayos, a southpaw, exchanged combinations and counters in center ring with Inkin, now 34-1 with 24 kayos, who was winning after eight rounds but found his southpaw opponent somewhat hard to hit. Balszay rallied to win rounds 9, 10, 11 and 12 as he landed more often as Inkin faded, and clearly won the fight, thoguh it appeared closer than the cards indicated.
