At just 16 days notice, Michell (140) put his title on the line against a fellow southpaw in Saiz (140), a Dominican residing in Brooklyn, New York, and had little trouble picking up the points decision, using a good left jab and firing in effective combination punches. The only knockdown was recorded in the fifth round when Saiz slipped over and the latter also lost a point in the seventh when going low, but despite all that he proved himself to be a tough customer who could take a good punch.
