Kazakhstan's Beibut Shumenov has won the WBA light heavyweight title, outpointing Spain's Gabriel Campillo in a split-decision.
Shumenov set a record Friday by winning a major title in his 10th professional bout. Michael Spinks held the previous mark by winning a championship in his 17th pro fight.
Judge Levi Martinez scored the fight 117-111 in favor of Campillo, while both other judges went for Shumenov: Jerry Roth had it 115-113 while Particia Morse Jarman scored the fight 117-111.
Friday's bout was a rematch of their title fight last August when Capillo won a mixed decision.
