In round 3 the fight is then briefly interrupted because Bözemann has a cut on his eyebrow and needs treatment.

At 1 a.m. many people with sunglasses on the move.”
As Round 4 begins, a spectator behind the commentary table starts smoking: “Here someone smokes. In the hall he stands and smokes. People are fowl in this arena. Insanity. Complete loss of anything to do with manners in any way. It is unbelievable. Boxing is the sport of gentlemen, not many here have read, internalized and noticed that. Street brawls are elsewhere. The next climb through the ring and almost want to get into the corner. You could have stopped the fight three times already.“
According to Drews, the boxing match between Sinan-G and Bözemann has nothing to do with boxing
When Bözemann catches various impact hits at the end of the 4th round, his trainer wants to throw in the towel in the ring, but is prevented from doing so by a colleague from Bözemann’s team. Tobias Drews says shocked: “They stumble into each other’s gloves.“ During the break for the 5th round he sighs: “It’s a low point, if you can use the word. It’s bad what’s happening here at the ring and almost worse than what’s happening in the ring. It’s a ring battle that has nothing to do with boxing. If you like boxing – boxing is a wonderful sport – if you’ve seen real fights, you’ll agree with me. It has nothing to do with it.”
