Berlin, Germany - IBF middleweight champ Arthur Abraham retained the title with a brutal eleventh round knockout over a very brave challenger in Khoren Gevor. The end came at 2.41. Gevor, who had fought with a beyond belief heart and determination was all of a sudden hurt by a left hook and staggered backwards, Abraham followed up,
missed with a big right hook but the short, powerful left hook that came behind it took out Gevor. The challenger went down on his knees and fell over as American referee Pete Podgorski dispensed with the count.

Gevor got up relatively quickly but looked badly dazed for minutes.

After ten it was scored 98-91, 97-93 and 97-95, all for Abraham.

Gevor was off to a good start outworking the champion. However, Abraham had much superior power and once he found the range he would nail Gevor almost at will fighting in spurts with long spells off as he often tends to do. Khoren, a southpaw, showed a good chin but most of all an enourmous will and kept coming back no matter what.
