Former WBC super middleweight champion Sakio “The Scorpion” Bika (34-7-3, 22 KOs) outworked Serbian Geard Ajetovic (31-16-1,16KO’s) over twelve rounds on Sunday for the vacant WBC International title at Star City Casino, Sydney, NSW, Australia. Bika controlled the bout in most of the rounds but some of his punches were below the belt and he was deducted two points by the referee. At the conclusion, Bika was awarded a unanimous decision.
Bika captured the WBC super middleweight crown by defeating Marco Antonio Periban in 2013 and gave WBA champion Andre Ward and IBF champion Joe Calzaghe tough twelve round bouts.
Ajetovic has previously lost in Australia to former IBF/WBA middleweight champion Daniel Geale in Sydney in 2008 by twelve round decision. He has also lost to Mathew Macklin and Dmitry Pirog by ten round decision.
