2003-12-20 [[Felix Sturm]] w pts 12 [[Ruben Varon]], Ostsee Hall, Kiel, Germany - WBO. Referee: Roberto Ramirez. Scorecards: 120-108, 120-108, 118-110. Making his first defence, Sturm (159¾) gave an excellent display of boxing as he outclassed Varon (158¾) from start to finish, breaking his nose and cutting him over the right eye. Although Varon started as though he meant business, landing a few solid left hooks, he was soon being contained and outboxed by the stronger Sturm, who surprisingly failed to go for a stoppage win when it had looked imminent. Content to take no risks, Sturm won every round on the cards.
