Despite cut above eye, Zeuge beats Ekpo to retain WBA belt (The Associated Press)

Tyron Zeuge retained his WBA super middleweight title by unanimous decision over Isaac Ekpo of Nigeria despite the bout stopping in the fifth round due to a cut above his eye on Saturday. The unbeaten German shaded the opening rounds but clashed heads with Ekpo in the third, opening the large cut over his right eye. Encouraged by blood streaming from the wound, Ekpo dominated the next round as Zeuge held on with his vision impaired.

Britain's Kell Brook will defend his IBF welterweight world title against mandatory American challenger Errol Spence Jr. at Sheffield United's Bramall Lane ground on May 27. "It's long been a dream of mine to fight outdoors at Bramall Lane and I'm pleased to do that in the biggest fight in the welterweight division," the 30-year-old told reporters on Wednesday. Brook has returned to the welterweight division after the previously unbeaten fighter was bludgeoned by Kazakhstan's Gennady Golovkin in a one-sided WBC and IBF middleweight title bout in London last September.

GGG has options, options, options (The Associated Press)

All the talk if Gennady Golovkin successfully defended his middleweight titles against Danny Jacobs was centered on GGG finally getting in the ring with Canelo Alvarez. Now, there might be another big-money possibility after Saturday night's close decision win: a rematch with Jacobs. Actually, Golovkin most likely will next fight England's Billy Joe Saunders, who owns the only belt in the weight class not in the Kazakh's possession, the WBO's version in the alphabet soup of championships.

By Larry Fine NEW YORK (Reuters) - Gennady "GGG" Golovkin, the most fearsome knockout artist of this era, was pushed to the limit by Daniel Jacobs before retaining his world middleweight titles by decision at Madison Square Garden on Friday. Jacobs, known as "Miracle Man" since coming back from bone cancer five years ago, ended the unbeaten Golovkin's streak of 23 knockouts in a row in a battle that went to the scorecards for the first time since 2008 for the Kazakh champion. Two judges scored it 115-112, with the third making it 114-113 in favor of Golovkin, who retained his WBC, WBA, IBF and IBO middleweight crowns.

Boxing: Srisaket wins WBC super flyweight title in bloody decision (Reuters)

By Larry Fine NEW YORK (Reuters) - Srisaket Sor Rungvisai of Thailand won a majority decision over Nicaraguan champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez in a bloody, 12-round slugfest to win the World Boxing Council super flyweight title on Saturday. It was non-stop action at Madison Square Garden with both boxers punching relentlessly, and the previously unbeaten Gonzalez covered in blood from a clash of heads that gave him a deep gash near his right eyebrow in the third round. Two judges scored it 114-112 for Srisaket, while the other judged it 113-113.
