2002-04-19 Johnny Bredahl w co 9 Eidy Moya, Falkoner Centre, Copenhagen, Denmark - WBA. Referee: Armando Garcia. To win the title at the age of 33, Bredahl (117½) boxed brilliantly, always being on the move, always keeping one step ahead of Moya (118) with left jabs and right crosses, and always confusing the champion. By the seventh round, Bredahl, who looked to be tiring, was way out in front before Moya came back in this session to land some reasonable punches of his own. In the eighth both were ragged until Bredahl got on the move again in the next round. Jabbing his man well Bredahl then sent in a burst of punches followed by a hard right, following which Moya crumpled to the canvas to be counted out after 2.40 had elapsed.
