2000-07-22 Will Grigsby w pts 12 Nelson Dieppa, American Airlines Arena, Miami, Florida, USA - WBO. Referee: Telis Assimenios. Scorecards: 116-112, 115-113, 115-113. Contested for the vacant title, Masibulele Makepula having moved on, Grigsby (107½), fighting on the back foot and countering with some venom made a difficult target for Dieppa (108) to overcome. The die had been cast when Dieppa, who finished up bruised and swollen around both eyes, had been unable to get close enough to do his best work.

Grigsby forfeited the WBO version of the title in October after testing positive following the fight.
