Light heavyweight Juergen Braehmer won by unanimous decision over Roberto Bolonti at the Sport and Congress Center in Schwerin, Germany, on Saturday, and heavyweight David Price did the same with Yaroslav Zavorotnyi on the undercard of a show promoted by Sauerland Events.

The 35-year-old Braehmer (44-2 with 32 knockouts) won for the 13th straight time during a run that includes seven stoppages since falling to Hugo Hernan Garay by unanimous decision in November 2008. Braehmer had last been in action for a fifth-round stoppage of Enzo Maccarinelli in April.

A winning streak of five consecutive knockouts ended for the 35-year-old Bolonti (35-3, 24 KOs), who was coming off a sixth-round knockout win over Jose Alberto Clavero in January. His last defeat was by unanimous decision to Tony Bellew in November 2012.

The 30-year-old Price (18-2, 15 KOs) returned to action against Zavorotnyi (16-7, 14 KOs) following a third-round knockout of Ondrej Pala in Denmark in April that followed a first-round stoppage of Istvan Ruzsinszky in January.

The win over Ruzsinszky helped the 6-foot-8 Price rebound from consecutive stoppage losses to Tony Thompson.

Zavorotnyi's last defeat was three fights ago in February 2011 — a unanimous-decision loss to Kubrat Pulev, who is said to be Wladimir Klitshcko's next opponent, on Sept. 6.
