Michael Sprott lost his European heavyweight title challenge against Ukranian champion Alexander Dimitrenko via a unanimous decision at the Dima-Sportcenter in Hamburg on Saturday night.
After a slow start Sprott began to use his experience to make Dimitrenko look very ordinary and one dimensional. The Reading man came into the fight more in the second period after making a somewhat cautious start against the taller champion.
Sprott 36, had Dimitrenko over in round 10 with a body shot and a right hand, but the referee didnt pick up any count. Unbelivably taking a point off Sprott for a foul.
British fighters dont get any favors in Germany, just ask Robin Reid and Matthew Macklin!
