2004-01-17 [[Zsolt Erdei]] w pts 12 [[Julio Cesar Gonzalez]], DM Arena, Karlsruhe, Germany - WBO. Referee: John Coyle. Scorecards: 118-110, 118-110, 117-111. Putting his title up for the first time, Gonzalez (172½) was comprehensively outboxed by the former world amateur champion, who settled quickly and was soon blocking and countering accurately. Despite being outreached, Erdei (172) had got his left jab working well by the third round and was already pulling away as Gonzalez rumbled forward. It was the same pattern from thereon and even though he hurt Gonzalez badly in the final session he failed to follow up, being content to box his way to the bell.
