2003-04-05 [[Markus Beyer]] w pts 12 [[Eric Lucas]], The Arena, Leipzig, Germany - WBC. Referee: Laurence Cole. Scorecards: John Keane 116-113, 116-113, 114-115. Making a fast start, the champion won the opening sessions, shaking Beyer (167¼) up with a big right in the third, before the latter settled in what became a difficult fight to score. There was no doubt that the German southpaw took most of the middle rounds, but Lucas (166¼) was always in contention and tried to finish strongly in every one of them. However, it was Beyer who finished the stronger in the 11th and 12th when standing his ground and throwing combinations to swing the fight his way.
