2005-02-26 Zsolt Erdei w pts 12 Hugo Hernan Garay, Color Line Arena, Hamburg, Germany - WBO. Referee: Luis Pabon. Scorecards: 110-118, 116-112, 115-113. Following on from their earlier hard-fought contest, this one was even closer at the finish, with the American judge giving it to the tough Argentinian challenger by ten rounds to two. Very aggressive, Garay (175) again started fast as he went for the body and continued to press throughout, his greater strength being paramount, and it wasn’t until the third that Erdei (173) began to get his boxing together. While Erdei landed the better quality, it was Garay, often slinging punches in, who came on strong in the last three rounds when making what turned out to be a vain effort to swing the fight his way.
