1996-06-08 Dariusz Michalczewski w pts 12 Christophe Girard, Sporting Hall, Cologne, Germany - WBO. Referee: Andre Van Grootenbruel. Scorecards: 117-112, 117-112, 117-111. Making sixth defence, Michalczewski (175) failed to get going and plodded to a points win that was made easier after Girard (175) damaged his right elbow in the ninth round. Prior to that, Girard had posed all kinds of problems, often beating the champion to the punch and generally messing him about. In the 11th Girard was deducted a point for an accidental head butt, but by then his chance had gone.
