2001-01-13 Zab Judah w rsc 10 Reggie Green, Mohegan Sun Casino, Uncasville, Connecticut, USA - IBF. Referee: Arthur Mercante. While clearly in control the southpaw champion appeared to be doing only as much as he needed to do, and in the sixth round the 81-year-old referee, a veteran of many big fights of yesteryear, asked him to provide more action. Almost immediately Judah (138¼) began to up his work-rate, Green (139), with swellings around both eyes, being wobbled several times before he was sent crashing in the tenth by a left hook to the head. No sooner had Green got to his feet another left put him down again, whereupon the referee called a halt with 1.31 of the session left on the clock.
