2005-02-26 [[Wladimir Sidorenko]] w pts 12 [[Julio Zarate]], Color Line Arena, Hamburg, Germany - WBA. Referee: Luis Pabon. Scorecards: 116-114, 117-112, 118-111. Making the first defence of the title he inherited from [[Johnny Bredahl]], Zarate (118) was unable to make much use of his height and reach advantage, being outhustled by the stronger Sidorenko (117¼) who came to the ring as a former world-class amateur. Not a big puncher, the Ukrainian showed a good defence as he took the fight to Zarate, throwing accurate hooks and uppercuts from both hands, and the latter was forced out of his rhythm before going down fighting. Whatever Zarate did his opponent was able to negate and he had won just three rounds on the scorecards before making a barnstorming finish in the 12th as Sidorenko settled for the points.
