1998-10-24 Artur Grigorian w rsc 10 Giorgio Campanella, Alsterdorfer Sports Hall, Hamburg, Germany - WBO. Referee: Genaro Rodriguez. Winning every round against the outclassed challenger Grigorian (134½) made his sixth successful defence in this one, finally proving he was a force to be reckoned with. After being totally outboxed, with the southpaw jab being drilled in time and time again, Campanella (134) even went southpaw himself in the seventh as he desperately tried to find a way out of his predicament. There was to be no easy answer, and after being dropped from a swarm of accurate and hurtful punches in the tenth the referee came to his rescue on the 1.36 mark.
