2004-09-11 Zsolt Erdei w pts 12 Alejandro Lakatos, Ice Hockey Stadium, Budapest, Hungary - WBO. Referee: Joachim Jacobsen. Scorecards: 116-112, 118-109, 116-111. Although the champion had Lakatos (174¼) in some difficulty early on, when scoring with solid counters, and won the opening five rounds he began to tire in the middle stages. Fighting sparingly, Erdei (174) did enough to influence the judges with last-minute bursts in every session, but after Lakatos was finally docked a point for going low in the seventh it was an uphill battle for him.
