WBC #5, IBF #7, WBO #10, WBA #12 light heavyweight Mathieu Bauderlique (21-1, 12 KOs) was victorious when WBC #3 rated former world title challenger Igor Mikhalkin (24-3, 11 KOs) couldn’t continue after round seven. Mikhalkin’s face was pretty swollen suggesting a possible broken jaw. Bauderlique wins the vacant European Union light heavyweight title.
