Cuba's Yoan Pablo Hernandez successfully defended his IBF cruiserweight title by unanimously outpointing Canada's Troy Ross in Germany.
Hernandez, who was making his second defence, was given the verdict 114-113, 115-112, 116-112 on the three judges' scorecards.
Apart from the opening round, which Hernandez dominated, Ross appeared livelier throughout and clearly thought he had done enough to win.
Hernandez was in serious trouble during an explosive third round and received an eight count in the fifth before referee David Fields allowed the Cuban to continue.
Ross himself was wobbling in the ninth, when Hernandez caught the 37-year-old with a heavy left blow but appeared too exhausted to finish him off after a flurry of punches.
Hernandez, 27, who has been based in Germany since 2005, improved to 27-1, while Ross dropped to 25-3.
