2000-05-06 Glenn Catley w rsc 12 Markus Beyer, Hoechst Ball Sports Hall, Frankfurt, Germany - WBC. Referee: Bob Logist. Shaken up by a heavy southpaw left in the second round as the champion looked to assert himself, Catley (167) gradually felt his way into the fight and saved his best work for the latter stages. Having nicked many of the rounds with Catley seemingly content to box on the outside, Beyer (167¼) possibly thought that he had the fight already won when he stepped out for the final session. However, Catley had different ideas and after dropping Beyer for ‘five’ with a left-right-left combination he tore in, belting away with both hands, before the referee had seen enough and rescued the latter after 53 seconds of the session had elapsed.
