2000-07-29 Daniel Santos w rsc 4 Giovanni Parisi, Oreste Granillo Stadium, Reggio Calabria, Italy - WBO. Referee: Raul Caiz. Despite having a good opening round Parisi (145¾) was found wanting thereafter as he struggled against the southpaw champion, four inches the taller, quickly falling behind on the cards. Coming into the fourth and clearly up against it, Parisi took a beating from Santos (146½), and after being knocked over twice and lying defenceless on the ropes the referee called it off on the 2.32 mark to save him from taking further punishment.
