1996-04-06 Dariusz Michalczewski w co 5 Asluddin Umarov, Sports Centre, Hannover, Germany - WBO. Referee: Ismael Fernandez. Although making a brave stand the challenger was no match for Michalczewski (174¾) who quickly targeted him with solid left jabs. Cut over the right eye in the fourth Umarov (174¼) was allowed to fight on, but continued to walk into big punches as Michalczewski began to unload blows from head to body. It could not last. Eventually, at 2.30 of the fifth, Umarov was counted out after being smashed to the floor by a terrific left hook to the jaw. The referee completed the count despite it being obvious that the challenger would not get up in time.
