2000-06-23 Artur Grigorian w rsc 12 Zoltan Kalocsai, FTC Stadium, Budapest, Hungary - WBO. Referee: Andre van Grootenbruel. Showing great fortitude after having his teeth loosened by a second-round uppercut, the challenger took Grigorian (135) into the latter stages of the fight, even winning the odd round or two before running out of time. Making his 12th defence, Grigorian patiently controlled matters with his accurate southpaw jab and superior ability before he finally forced Kalocsai (134½) to his knees in the 12th following a burst of accurate combinations. Back on his feet Kalocsai was quickly dropped again, and seeing that his position was hopeless the referee called it off with two minutes of the contest remaining.
