WBA super middleweight champion Tyron Zeuge (22-0-1, 12 KOs) scored a second round TKO over Isaac Ekpo (32-4, 25 KOs) on Saturday at the Inselparkhalle Arena in Hamburg, Germany. Zeuge dropped Ekpo with a hard combination in round two and the bout was stopped by referee Mark Nelson. Time was :23.
The bout was a rematch. In their first clash in March of last year, Zeuge won a technical decision after a cut caused by a head clash and a rematch was granted. This time no controversy.
