Unbeaten WBC #10, IBF #7, WBA #9, WBO #13 heavyweight Agit Kabayel (21-0, 13 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over 41-year-old former world title challenger Kevin “Kingpin” Johnson (35-18-1, 19 KOs) on Saturday night in the open-air Seebühne at Elbauen Park in Magdeburg, Germany. Kabayel did enough to win most the early rounds, having success with a chopping right. Kingpin came alive in round six and seemed to have Kabayel stunned after a barrage of punches. Best round of the fight was round twelve when both let their hands go. Scores were 118-111, 118-111, 119-110.

German cruiserweight champion Roman Fress (13-0, 8 KOs) scored a sixth round KO over previously unbeaten Kamei Kouaouch (11-1, 0 KOs) in a bout for the WBO Inter-Continental title. An uppercut laid out Kouaouch.

  • Kingpin has made a career out of going the distance and collecting a paycheck. Whatever pays the bills I suppose. Hard to believe he challenged for a world title at one point.

    • Johnson was 22-0-1 (9KOs) heading into the Klitschko fight. He’s 13-18 (10 KOs) from Klitschko onward. So many fights where he just didn’t let his hands go. Seemed satisfied to just take the decision loss.

      • I always thought the same. He couldn’t pull the trigger. But, he must obviously be collecting a decent check jobbing overseas for so long now.

        • Yep, probably makes a decent living doing what he does.

          Take a look at the Klitschko-Johnson boxrec page. It mentions that Johnson said Klitschko wouldn’t knock him out. That was a glimpse of what was to come….Johnson mainly in survival mode. His goal being to go the distance, not necessarily winning. He fought that way that night, and never really snapped out of it. He had some talent. Classic underachiever.

  • Kabayel was seriously hurt in the 6th but Johnson obviously wasn’t interested in finishing him with almost 2 minutes remaining in the round.
