1998-09-19 Dariusz Michalczewski w rsc 8 Mark Prince, Centrum Arena, Oberhausen, Germany - WBO. Referee: Rudy Battle. Despite working hard from the opening bell, Prince (173¾) was always up against it as Michalczewski (174¾) picked his punches with care and cut the ring down to size before opening up. Prince had his best rounds in the third and fourth when letting the punches go, but at no time did Michalczewski seem concerned and when the challenger was cut over the right eye in the fifth the writing was on the wall. Yet again Michalczewski impressed with his quality, his left jabs and hooks being sharp, accurate and powerful, and he never wasted a punch. Even though Prince may have held his own in the sixth he was tiring fast, having expended so much energy, and in the eighth he was sent crashing through the ropes onto the ring apron by a terrific left hook. Not even bothering to pick up the count, the referee immediately closed the show with three seconds of the session remaining.
