2002-04-20 Dariusz Michalczewski w co 2 Joey DeGrandis, Stoczniowiec Arena, Gdansk, Poland - WBO. Referee: Joachim Jacobsen. Although the challenger gave it a real go in the opening session, sending in overarm rights in a bid to catch Michalczewski (175) cold, once the latter got his left jab to work the end was never far away. Despite winning six in a row, DeGrandis (175) was soon on the back foot in the second after feeling the power of Michalczewski’s jab. It came as no surprise when he was set up by a right hook before being counted out at 1.58 of the session following a terrific left uppercut that smashed him to the floor.
