2004-12-18 [[Markus Beyer]] w pts 12 [[Yoshinori Nishizawa]], Upper Franconian Arena, Bayreuth, Germany - WBC. Referee: John Keane. Scorecards: 116-111, 117-111, 118-109. Having put the 38-year-old Nishizawa down in the opening round, even though it was not counted as a knockdown, the southpaw champion was forced to take the mandatory ‘eight’ count after being himself dropped by a solid right in the second. It was more surprise than hurt and Beyer (166¾) was soon dictating matters even though he could not find the punch to finish Nishizawa off. Afterwards, Beyer stated that he was amazed that his brave opponent was able to take so many heavy shots without crumbling, testament to the man from Japan’s durability.
