2001-03-24 Wladimir Klitschko w rsc 2 Derrick Jefferson, Rudi Sedlmayer Hall, Munich, Germany - WBO. Referee: Genaro Rodriguez. Showing impressive hand speed and control, the champion soon had Jefferson (260) in trouble and on the floor from a left-right to the head. The American might have made it to the bell to end the opening round, but it was clear even at that stage he would not last much longer. Down for the second time from a crashing right to the jaw, Jefferson got up only to be bludgeoned to the floor again, whereupon the referee called a halt, timed at 2.09.
