2004-05-27 Mahyar Monshipour w rsc 8 Salim Medjkoune, D’Auvergne Grand Hall, Clermont Ferrand, France - WBA. Referee: Daniel Talon. Although cut over the right eye in the opener and on the left eye in the third round, Monshipour (121½) continued to swarm all over his southpaw challenger, who was virtually ‘sold out’ by the end of the sixth. Stepping up his assaults, especially to the body, Monshipour closed in on Medjkoune (121¼) to drop him in the eighth with a left hook to the jaw followed by a sickening right to the body. Despite Medjkoune making it to his feet, he was quickly overwhelmed and the referee stopped the fight at 2.20 of the session to save him from further punishment.
