1995-06-17 Regilio Tuur w rsc 5 Pete Taliaferro, Theatre of the Performing Arts, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - WBO. Referee: Johnny Femia. On the back foot from the opening bell the challenger was never really in the fight apart from a sustained, furious assault in the fourth, and Tuur (130) went further and further in front as the fight progressed. Upping the pressure in the fifth Tuur walked into Taliaferro (130), eventually getting to his rival with a hard right to the jaw followed by a left hook which bent him over double. With Taliaferro still unprotected, after Tuur had smashed in a heavy overarm right to the back of his head the referee called it off with 17 seconds of the session remaining.
