Ekpo, Beaten By WBO Super Middleweight Champion Stieglitz in Germany.

Nigeria’s Isaac ‘the grenade’ Ekpo lost in his bid to claim the WBO super middleweight belt from current champion Robert Stieglitz of Germany on Saturday.

The 30-year-old Nigerian boxer, who featured at the 2004 Athens Olympics, had hoped to stun his German opponent in his first bout in Europe.

But Stieglitz (46-3, 26 KOs) hammered out a twelve round unanimous decision over Ekpo (22-2, 16 KO’s) at the Exhibition Hall EINS in Leipzig, Germany.

The first (Waleska Roldan) and second (Andre Van Grootenbruel) judges scored the fight 118-110 each, while the third (Frank Michael Maass) scored it 119-109.

It was Stieglitz’s second defence of the title he claimed in March and his speed and work rate kept the harder punching Ekpo off-balance.

Ekpo has not beaten any leading contender but is ranked seventh on the WBO’s list.
