2004-10-23 [[Vivian Harris]] w rsc 11 [[Oktay Urkal]], The Tempodrome, Berlin, Germany - WBA. Referee: Armando Garcia. Making his first defence, Harris (139¾) had already beaten Urkal (139) and knew exactly what he had to do this time round. There was never much between them, with Harris throwing the power punches and Urkal the smarter boxer of the two, but as they entered the latter stages the challenger, cut on the right eye, was unable to raise his game. The 11th saw Harris up the pace to drop Urkal with a right to the jaw and when the German got up and stumbled badly the referee stopped it with 56 seconds of the round gone.
