World cruiserweight champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez has defended his IBF title with a split-decision victory over German veteran Firat Arslan.

Two judges marked their cards in favour of Hernandez (115-113, 116-113) but a third went for 43-year-old Arslan (115-113) in a bout late Saturday in Erfurt, Germany.

The victory left Hernandez, 29, with the 29th win of his career, with a sole defeat.

It was the Cuban's fourth title defence since winning the crown from American Steve Cunningham in October 2011.
