American Lamon Brewster retained his WBO heavyweight title with a ninth-round win over Germany's Luan Krasniqi in Hamburg.

Krasniqi proved a match for Brewster until the eighth round when a big right sent him crashing to the canvas and he was floored again a round later.

Brewster took his record to 33-2 with a third successful defence of his title.

The bout was staged on what would have been German legend Max Schmeling's 100th birthday.
