Germany's Markus Beyer comfortably defended his WBC super middleweight title in a one-sided contest against challenger Omar Sheika.

The judges scored the fight 116-112, 118-110 and 116-112.

The result took Beyer's career record to 33-2 with 12 knockouts, while Sheika's title defeat was the fourth of his career.

"I hit him cleanly, he hardly hit me. What more do you want?" said Beyer. "I'm ready to fight anybody now."

Beyer won the first three rounds against a sluggish Sheika, dominating with his left.

His opponent finally made his mark on the bout with an impressive fourth-round performance and repeated that sort of form in occasional rounds after that.
