This has never happened before, and here it is again: vile refereeing from Germany – results


Rudolf Weber-Arena, Oberhausen, Germany. Serbian native playing for Germany Shefat Isufi (36-4-2, 24 KOs) defended the WBF light heavyweight world champion belt (up to 79.4 kg) in a confrontation with a Canadian veteran Ryan Ford (17-8, 12 KOs). Not without the traditional German home refereeing.

The age challenger looked good: he shook the champion in the 7th round, he got even tougher in the 9th three-minute period. In an attempt to finish off an opponent, Ford soon used up all his strength. Isufi fell, but the referee was in no hurry to open an account.

The judges unanimously gave the victory to the local fighter – three times 115-113. In fact, Ford won confidently (about 8-4).
