2004-09-04 [[Johnny Nelson]] w rsc 7 [[Rudiger May]], Gruga Hall, Essen, Germany - WBO. Referee: Axel Zielke. Despite being firm friends, it counted for nothing once the action got underway as May (198¾) took the early initiative as the champion settled in. However, by the third round, Nelson (199½) was beginning to go on the offensive, getting in solid combinations, and following a situation where he was deducted two points for pushing in the sixth he cut loose. From thereon, it was all Nelson as the challenger tired and in the seventh he dropped May with a heavy right to the head. Up again, it was apparent that May was through as Nelson stormed in with damaging blows hitting the target and with May all over the place the referee called it off on the 2.29 mark.
