Thought it was a rather funny title but my hometown boy got his ass whipped in a title bout.
WBA cruiserweight world champion Firat Arslan (29-3-1, 18 KOs) scored a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over #14 rated Darnell 'The Ding-a-ling Man' Wilson (23-7-3, 20 KOs) on Saturday night at the Schleyer-Halle in Stuttgart, Germany. Arslan pressed the action from the opening bell, but both were cautious early on. Wilson upped the output in round two and Arslan did likewise in round three. Arslan's pressure pushed Wilson back as he appeared to be imposing his will. Rounds five and six were dominated by the champion, as Wilson mostly had no answers. With chances of a points win seemingly disappearing, the "Ding-A-Ling Man" started looking for a KO as the bout progressed, winging big shots in the eighth. Arslan responded in a punishing ninth round. Arslan landed almost at will in the tenth and went on to win handily by scores of 117-111, 117-111, 117-111.
