2004-04-10 In-Jin Chi w co 7 Michael Brodie, MEN Arena, Manchester, England - WBC. Referee: Massimo Barrovecchio. Contesting the vacant title, and a return match, Chi (125¾) never allowed Brodie (126) to settle as he fired in long, raking punches to head and body. Having learned the lessons of their first fight, Chi put the Englishman down inside two minutes, dominating from then on despite being cut on the left eye in the fourth. Staying on top of his man, Chi eventually landed a tremendous left hook that put Brodie down to be counted out on the 2.48 marker in the seventh. The finishing punch appeared to land on Brodie’s already suspected broken nose, there being no way back from that.
