Enzo Maccarinelli vs. Juergen Braehmer: Top Takeaways from Title Fight
Associated Press

Enzo Maccarinelli did not come out for the sixth round on Saturday night in Rostock, as he fell short in his challenge of Juergen Braehmer's secondary WBA world title.

Maccarinelli's night was over before it really began, as he suffered a bad eye injury towards the end of Round 1 which quickly closed up, leaving him with no vision in his right eye—a handicap which ultimately brought his retirement in the corner.

At 33, there will again be questions as to whether Maccarinelli should retire, with this defeat bringing his 2013 mini-revival to an end.

As for Braehmer, this was only really his second tough opponent since his 2012 comeback, and he must now decide whether to step up and potentially travel to fight one of the division's genuine world champions, or, at 35, to wind down his career in his native Germany.

Here are the main takeaways from Saturday's fight.
