Unbeaten prospect Zulcic (12-0, 5 KOs) got hit with a few good punches in the first round by the smaller and heavier Kara (5-4). In the second, Zulcic hurt Kara with a right hand and the follow up punches led to an eight count. Zulcic kept up his attack on the exhausted Kara. More punches led to Kara turning away and referee Joop Ubeda waved the bout off.
-63 kg: Jeton Bajra (Germany) def. Olan Celikdal (Turkey)-Decision

Enfusion 87 Results
-72.5 kg: Seif Harnafi (Morocco) def. Artur Scherer (Kazakhstan)-Decision
Harnafi took the fight to Scherer (33-6, 13 KOs), who sought to fend him off and move. Harnafi (8-1, 2 KOs) showed good punching power, while Scherer also scored well with his hands and knees to the body. Neither fighter was knocked down or hurt, and the judges favored the harder shots and aggression from Sarnafi. Ukrainian legend Artur Kyshenko was in Scherer’s corner.
-52 kg: Cindy Silvestre (France) def. Hara Dimitroula (Greece)-Decision
Great back-and-forth battle. Dimitroula (35-6, 6 KOs) had success with her boxing in round one, landing some nice straight punches. Silvestre (55-29, 6 KOs) landed some good punches in round two and bloodied Dimitroula’s nose. Dimitroula battled back late in the round. Silvestre took control in round three although Dimitroula continued to battle. Silvestre’s knees to the body and head late in the round probably earned her the win.
-85 kg: Juri De Sousa (Portugal) def. Filip Topic (Croatia)-Decision
The smaller De Sousa 31-6-1, 18 KOs) was too quick and crafty for Topic. He dropped Topic (50-12, 27 KOs) with what appeared to be a left hook in round one, and got the better of the exchanges throughout. De Sousa landed his left hook cleanly upstairs a few times, snapping the Croatian’s head back.
-67 kg: Andrej Bruhl (Germany) def. Stefanos Baglatsakos (Greece)- Extra Round Decision
Bruhl seemed to earn a clear decision after three rounds but an extra round was decided. The German was the sharper fighter, as he made Baglatsakos miss a lot of punches and scored some sharp shots. In the extra round, Bruhl continued to go forward and get the better of the action to earn the win.
-75 kg: Regilio Van Den Ent (Netherlands) def. Shkodran Veseli (Albania)-Decision
Van Den Ent 36-6-2, 15 KOs) hurt Veseli (84-20-1) in round one with a right before he scored a knockdown with a well-placed left hook to the body. Both fighters landed some good shots, but Van Dent scored with the better blows. Another left hook downstairs dropped Veseli in the third giving Van Den Ent a clear win.
