1996-10-11 Johnny Tapia w rsc 7 Sammy Stewart, Texas Station Gaming Hall, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBO. Referee: Jay Nady. Proving to be an awkward customer, Stewart (113½) made things tough for Tapia (115) in the early stages as he continually leapt at the champion with wild punches. However, by the fifth Tapia began to back Stewart up with combinations. With the battle-plan working a treat, in the seventh Tapia shook Stewart up badly as he lunged in. By now the Liberian was looking distinctly at risk, and after Tapia had punched him around the ring with a nine-punch combination followed by three heavy rights the referee had seen enough, calling it off on the 1.44 mark.
