2005-09-28 Lamon Brewster w rtd 9 Luan Krasniqi, Color Line Arena, Hamburg, Germany - WBO. Referee: Jose Rivera. Having won virtually every round by the end of the seventh, using the left-right effectively, Krasniqi (224¾) came unstuck in the eighth when the champion dropped him with a battery of solid hooks. To catch up with his rival, Brewster (228¼) had been forced to take plenty of leather on the way in, but it proved to be worth it. Amazingly, despite failing to beat the count immediately prior to the bell, Krasniqi was allowed to return to his corner to continue the fight. Although the challenger came out for the ninth defiantly, even landing a solid right uppercut, Brewster now had him in his sights. Nothing was going to stop Brewster now and having decked Krasniqi with a crashing right to the head, the fight was over on the 2.48 mark after the towel had been thrown in by the latter’s corner.
