2005-05-14 Will Grigsby w pts 12 Jose Victor Burgos, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Kenny Bayless. Scorecards: 116-112, 118-110, 117-111. Finding it difficult to pin down the elusive Grigsby (106), the champion was kept off balance by fast and accurate left jabs and left hook counters as he looked to unload. Several times in the seventh Burgos (107) was rocked by left jabs and straight rights, but took all that Grigsby could throw at him before coming back with shots of his own. Although Burgos was still in the contest and had occasional successes during the last five rounds he had fallen too far behind on the scorecards, and unable to find a finisher lost his title.
