2004-06-19 [[Scott Harrison]] w rsc 3 [[William Abelyan]], Braehead Arena, Renfrew, Scotland - WBO. Referee: Samuel Viruet. Although this was considered to be a difficult defence against a wily southpaw opponent, Harrison (125) showed he was genuine world class when he dumped Abelyan (125¾) twice in the third to force a stoppage at 1.45 of the round. There was no doubting Abelyan’s class, but he was dismissed by a supremely confident champion and one who realised that he had the beating of anyone the WBO cared to throw at him.
