2003-03-29 [[Dariusz Michalczewski]] w co 9 [[Derrick Harmon]], Color Line Arena, Hamburg, Germany - WBO. Referee: Eddie Cotton. Starting slowly as usual, Michalczewski (174½) conceded the opening three sessions as his awkward challenger was the faster out of the blocks, using his southpaw jab and low stance to confuse him. Persevering, Michalczweski gradually got his left jab working and by the sixth round he was in control as Harmon (175) began to feel the pace. Holding more and more Harmon was still making life difficult for Michalczewski, but in the ninth a solid left to the body that was followed by several heavy shots saw him drop on one knee to be counted out on the 1.08 mark.
