BY foxsports • April 9, 2011

Robert Stieglitz of Germany retained his WBO super middleweight title Saturday when challenger Khoren Gevor of Armenia was disqualified in the 10th round for an intentional head butt.

The foul at 2:45 of the 10th round caused a deep cut above Stieglitz' right eye. Both fighters wrestled each other to the ground before the fight was stopped.

Gevor scuffled with Stieglitz's corner and swapped blows with several handlers before being escorted from the ring.

Stieglitz improved to 40-2. Gevor fell to 31-6.
