Hussein Muhamed defeats Senad Gashi (Video)Hot
Unbeaten heavyweight Hussein Muhamed (17-0, 13 KOs) dropped Senad Gashi (21-4, 21 KOs) twice to earn a 10 round unanimous decision earlier this evening in Hamburg, Germany.
Gashi was a late sub for unbeaten Jose Angel Larduet. Nevertheless, the win puts Muhamed in relatively good company. He joins Carlos Takam, Tom Schwarz, and Dereck Chisora as the only fighters to have defeated Senad.
The fight wasn't overly entertaining. Muhamed, five inches taller than Gashi, used his reach advantage to good effect. There was a lot of holding and the bout was a bit messy.
Heading into the fight, Muhamed, 30, was ranked No. 68 (No. 5 Germany) in the division by BoxRec while Gashi, 31, was rated No. 73 (No. 7 in Germany) by the same site.
With the win, look for Muhamed to surge in the rankings.
The loss snapped a four-fight win streak for Gashi.
