Bulgarian boxer Kubrat Pulev AKA "The Cobra" won Saturday the EBU European heavyweight title.
Pulev battered and stopped Alexander "Sascha" Dimitrenko of Germany (a Ukrainian native) in a face-off in the professional boxing championship in Erfurt, Germany.
The match began with a slow pace with the two cautiously studying each other, but by round four Pulev obviously took the control and the lead in the game.
The end for Dimitrenko came at round 11 when he was felled by a jab. The exhausted German hit the floor, having no intention of trying to beat the count, and after the knockout, Kubrat Pulev became the European heavyweight champion.
