2002-04-06 Harry Simon w pts 12 Armand Krajnc, Bygningen Circus Arena, Copenhagen, Denmark - WBO. Referee: Michael Ortega. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-112, 116-113. The contest was fairly even during the opening few rounds, but eventually Simon (159) established a reasonable lead, his solid combination punches being effective despite not hurting the champion. A great competitor, Krajnc (159½) was always competitive and looked as strong as when he started at the final bell, but it was Simon who had the quality. There were no knockdowns. With Simon failing to make a defence following injuries sustained during a car crash, Hector Velazco forced Andras Galfi to retire at the end of the seventh round to win the vacant WBO ‘interim’ title at the Luna Park Stadium, Buenos Aires, Argentina on 10 May 2003. However, in early July 2003, Velazco was appointed champion after Simon was stripped when it was recognised that he had not fully recovered and still had legal issues to be sorted out.
