The fight was rather chaotic, the referee intended to end it more than once because he felt that Stefan Raab’s health was in danger, but show host Raab kept convincing him to continue the fight.

Although Halmich broke Stefan Raab’s nose during the fight, he at least managed to go the distance with her. A second fight between these two took place in 2007, and Halmich won again.
