Corrie Sanders Decisions Bispo
13.05.07 - Corrie Sanders (42-3, 31 KO’s) had a tough time while winning a 10-round unanimous decision over Daniel Bispo on Saturday night at the Emperors Palace Casino, in South Africa. The final judges’ scores were 100-91, 100-91 and 100-91. Sanders, 41 started out strong, knocking Bispo about with ease in the first round and totally outclassing him despite Corrie’s advanced age. However, in the process, Sanders injured his left hand and was unable to use it for the remainder of the 10-round fight. It hardly mattered. Even with one hand, Sanders was much too skilled for the Brazilian Bispo, tagging him with powerful right hands and slapping him with his injured left.

In only his second fight since his two year retirement, Sanders came into the fight weighing 243 lbs, slightly better than the huge 258 that he fought at in his last fight against Colin Wilson in November 2006, but still at least 18 lbs higher than his optimal weight.
Sanders, hopes to challenge for a heavyweight title within two or three more fights, preferring to fight one of the Klitschko brothers. However, before he can do that, he’s going to have to step it up a couple of notches and face a top ranked fighter if he hopes to ever get the chance at a heavyweight title match.
