Stieglitz labours against Ekpo to defend WBO title

Berlin (AFP)Germany’s Robert Stieglitz admitted he laboured to defend his world super-middleweight title with a unanimous points win against Nigeria’s Isaac Ekpo.
Stieglitz was made to work in Leipzig against African champion Ekpo with the judges awarding the fight 110-118, 110-118, 109-119 to the WBO champion on Saturday night.
“The main thing is that I am still the world champion,” said Stieglitz, after his second defence after winning the title from compatriot Arthur Abraham in March.
“I had imagined the fight would have gone a bit better, I wanted to show more.”
This was Stieglitz’s 46th win in his 49th fight, but was far from a spectacle for the 6,000 crowd and Ekpo, 30, made him work hard for the victory.
“He was very mobile and kept dipping down, he was hard to box against,” said the 32-year-old Stieglitz.
Next up for Stieglitz is a third bout against Abraham or ex-middleweight WBA champion Felix Sturm, said his management.

Titanic violin auctioned for world record £900,000

London (AFP) - The violin played by the bandmaster of the Titanic to calm passengers as it sank sold at auction for £900,000 ($1.45 million, 1.06 million euros) on Saturday, a world record fee for memorabilia from the doomed liner.
The instrument, found strapped to the body of Wallace Hartley after he drowned along with 1,500 others in the disaster in 1912, was sold at Titanic specialist auctioneers Henry Aldridge and Son in Devizes, southwest England.
"We're absolutely overjoyed," Christine Aldridge, a spokeswoman for the auction house, told AFP.
"It was sold to a UK collector who was bidding by telephone. The whole sale only took about 10 minutes."
She said the final price including premiums paid to the auction house was £1,050,030.
The instrument carries an inscription from the 33-year-old's fiancee Maria Robinson to mark their engagement and was on sale with its leather luggage case, initialled W.H.H, in which it was found.
For decades the violin was believed lost but it was found in the attic of a house in northwest England in 2006, prompting a debate about its authenticity, which experts only recently resolved.
Bidding started at just £50 for the violin, but within a few minutes it had passed the previous world record of £220,000 for a Titanic piece as competition between four telephone bidders hotted up.
There were gasps from the 200 people at the auction house as the price reached £350,000 and then a tense silence as the battle for the instrument narrowed to two telephone bidders.
Hartley's band played the hymn "Nearer, My God, to Thee" to try to calm passengers while they climbed into lifeboats as the Titanic sank beneath the icy waves in the North Atlantic on April 15, 1912, after hitting an iceberg.
Hartley and his seven fellow band members all died after choosing to play on.
