2000-11-25 Artur Grigorian w pts 12 Antonio Pitalua, Preussag Hall, Hannover, Germany - WBO. Referee: Michael Ortega. Scorecards: 114-112, 116-111, 115-112. Having dictated matters through the opening five rounds with his extra speed and accurate southpaw jab, the champion was hurt by Pitalua (134) late in the sixth and came under attack again in the seventh before being dropped by a short right in the eighth. Grigorian (134¾) was then deducted a point in the ninth for hitting behind the head and at that point there was nothing between the two men. Then, with Pitalua throwing caution to the wind as he relentlessly charged in, Grigorian showed his extra class when measuring him with solid left-hand counters over the remaining three sessions to make sure of the verdict.
