2004-10-09 Markus Beyer w co 6 Cristian Sanavia, Fair Hall, Erfurt, Germany - WBC. Referee: Ian-John Lewis. Defending the title against the man he won it from, Sanavia (165¾) started slowly in the opening session before taking the next four rounds and looking the more than likely winner at that stage of the proceedings. However, boxing coolly, Beyer (167¼) had begun to show signs of his form late on in the fifth and in the sixth he turned the fight on its head when smashing Sanavia to the floor with a right and two lefts to the jaw. Although Sanavia was up at ‘eight’ he was sagging badly and the referee continued to count to ‘ten’, the finish coming after 54 seconds of the session had elapsed.
