2001-02-24 Artur Grigorian w rtd 6 Angel Jose Perez, Wandsbek Sports Hall, Hamburg, Germany - WBO. Referee: Andre van Grootenbruel. Totally dominating from the opening bell, the southpaw champion gave Perez (135) no time to think let alone get his punches off as he jabbed the Spaniard silly and set him up for solid lefts from head to body. Perez, badly swollen around the eyes, did his best to stay intact, but after Grigorian (135) had dropped him in the sixth with a left cross he had nowhere to hide. Allowed to fight on following the ‘eight’ count, Perez, under immense pressure as Grigorian looked for the finishing blow, was retired by his corner at 1.40 of the session when they threw the towel in.
