1998-11-14 Fabrice Tiozzo w co 2 Ezequiel Paixao, Francois Mitterand Space Arena, Mont De Marsan, France - WBA. Referee: John Coyle. Tiozzo (189) was never under any kind of threat whatsoever from a challenger who appeared to be short of ideas and power, and after finding his range with the left jab he dropped the Brazilian with a right cross at the end of the opening session. Starting the second as he left off, with Tiozzo hurting Paixao (183½) almost every time he connected the latter was counted out at 1.04 of the round having taken another heavy right to the jaw.
