2008-11-01 Sergei Dzindziruk w pts 12 Joel Julio, Koenig Pilsener Arena, Oberhausen, Germany - WBO. Referee: Genaro Rodriguez. Scorecards: 116-112, 117-111, 116-112. On 29 November at the Citizens’ Business Bank Arena, Ontario, California, USA, Paul Williams forced Verno Phillips to retire at the end of the eighth round of their fight for the vacant WBO ‘interim’ title. After Williams relinquished the ‘interim’ title, he was succeeded by Alfredo Angulo who knocked out Harry Joe Yorgey inside three rounds at the XL Centre, Hartford, Connecticut, USA on 7 November 2009 and then went on to make a successful defence when stopping Joel Julio in the 11th at the Citizens Business Bank Arena on 24 April 2010. Angulo forfeited the WBO ‘interim’ title on 17 July 2010 after beating Joachim Alcine in a final eliminator for the WBC crown and failing to agree a match against Dzindziruk.
