2003-10-24 Johnny Bredahl w pts 12 David Guerault, KB Hall, Copenhagen, Denmark - WBA. Referee: Michael Ortega. Scorecards: 114-113, 118-111, 117-110. Starting fast, Bredahl (118) almost had his challenger over from body punches in the first round before having to settle for a hard-fought victory as his awkward rival made it difficult for him with swarming southpaw attacks. Bredahl was by far the better boxer, scoring with good, clean punches, but was taken out of his stride by Guerault (117¾) and ended up with both eyes swollen, testament to 15 years of ring activity taking its toll.

On 6 March 2004 at the Super Arena, Saitama, Japan, Julio Zarate won the WBA ‘interim’ title when outpointing the holder, Hideki Todaka, over 12 rounds.
