2002-09-14 Artur Grigorian w pts 12 Stefano Zoff, Volkswagen Hall, Braunschweig, Germany - WBO. Referee: Joachim Jacobsen. Scorecards: 115-113, 115-113, 118-110. Despite boxing below par, Grigorian (135) was adjudged to have outscored the former champion, Zoff (134¼), who took the fight to the southpaw champion and made life difficult for him with his awkward style. Although Zoff had reach advantage, he was happy to stay at close quarters where Grigorian was not given the time and space to get his powerful lefts off as he looked for a stoppage win. It was undoubtedly close and difficult to score, but how one judge had Grigorian winning by ten rounds to two was unfathomable.
