1985-01-19 [[Donald Curry]] w rsc 4 (15) [[Colin Jones]], National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, England - WBA/IBF. Referee: Ismael Fernandez. Catching Jones (146) with three fast jabs immediately the first round got underway set the tone as the champion quickly moved into punching range. With Curry (147) continuing to press in the second there several heavy exchanges between the pair, but in the third it all went wrong for the Welshman after Curry went to work with both hands and split the bridge of Jones’ nose. Unfortunately, the cut was too bad to repair during the interval and after just 36 seconds of the fourth, on the ringside doctor’s advice, the referee halted the bout, thus ending Jones’ dream of becoming a world champion.
