2005-03-12 Markus Beyer w pts 12 Danny Green, Stadium Hall, Zwickau, Germany - WBC. Referee: Laurence Cole. Scorecards: 114-113, 115-112, 114-114. Finally getting his return against the champion Green (166) was expected by many to take over the title, and although it was always close the verdict was a fair reflection as to how the fight went. This time round, with much of Green’s aggression ineffective he was occasionally hurt by southpaw lefts to the body as Beyer (167) looked to find a weakness. However, in the tenth Green came on strong, smashing in lefts and rights before having Beyer counted on in the 12th following a big right to the head. Although the ropes stopped Beyer from hitting the floor, when the German was allowed to box on Green jumped all over him until running out of time.
