Professional Accomplishments

  • Most title defenses (21) in super middleweight history along with Joe Calzaghe
  • One of few champions to retire undefeated
  • Though Ottke retired undefeated, the legitimacy of his record will always be in question due to multiple controversial decisions he received in his home country of Germany, including wins over Mads Larsen, Robin Reid, Byron Mitchell and Charles Brewer

Comeback Bout Was Planned

After an expensive divorce, Ottke planned to return to the ring in 2008 in Germany as a Cruiserweight against former Light Heavyweight champion Dariusz Michalczewski of Poland. However, the bout never took place.
