By WBA 23/11/2009

In a clash for the vacant WBA super middleweight world championship, Dimitri Sartison scored a fifth round TKO over Stjepan Bozic. The referee stopped the bout on the advice of the ring doctor because the left eye of Bozic was swollen shut.

WBA super middleweight world champion Dimitri Sartison: “Thank you for the many congratulations. My dream has finally came true and I’ve become world champion. I still can’t believe it. I’m speechless. Of course, I feel like a true champion, although I have a score to settle with Kessler – but yes, I feel this way.”

Coach Magomed Schaburow: “The fighter is speechless, I’m KO’d. I still need some time to process everything, but we are very excited about this evening.”
