2000-04-08 Bruno Girard w pts 12 Byron Mitchell, Bercy Sports Palace, Paris, France - WBA. Referee: John Coyle. Scorecards: 117-114, 116-113, 116-113. Making good his return with Mitchell (167½) and fighting on home ground, Girard (168) lifted the title after coming on strongly to take three of the last four rounds as the champion tired. There was no doubt that Mitchell was the harder puncher of the two and he boxed well behind the jab in the early stages, but had he paced himself better it could have been a different story.
