9. SVEN OTTKE W12 ROBIN REID
Nuremberg Arena, Nuremberg, Germany, December 13, 2003
A truly risible affair in which Reid seemed to incur warnings and censure from third man, Rodger Tilleman, for anything from the colour of his shorts to hitting the defending champion’s head with his gloves.
The owner of one of perhaps the more misleading unbeaten records in latter day championship boxing history, the safety first Ottke’s WBA super middleweight title was duly saved by an extremely dubious unanimous decision.
