2005-09-03 Markus Beyer w pts 12 Omar Sheika, IC Centre, Berlin, Germany - WBC. Referee: Massimo Barrovecchio. Scorecards: 118-110, 116-112, 116-112. Boxing at his best the champion cut Sheika (167¼) on the right eye in the opening session before settling down to outbox the American, mainly by the use of a southpaw straight left. It was not until the fifth that Sheika landed a meaningful blow, a right to the jaw that shook Beyer (167¼), but he was unable to follow it up. Brewer almost put Sheika away in the eighth with a solid left, but as in most of his fights he seemed content to sit back and box his way to a comprehensive points victory.
