2000-02-19 Artur Grigorian w rtd 9 Sandro Casamonica, Estrel Convention Centre, Berlin, Germany - WBO. Referee: Andre van Grootenbruel. As in previous contests, Grigorian (134¾) soon got his southpaw jab working, but although winning round after round he seemed unable to put his challenger away. Having been outboxed, outclassed and out of his depth it had been an uphill battle for Casamonica (134¾), who bravely kept going before he retired himself after 1.48 of the ninth when deciding enough was enough. Dropped in the eighth and cut over the left eye, with his right eye closing fast, it was all too much for him.
