1991-04-05 Victor Cordoba w rsc 9 Christophe Tiozzo, Sports Palace, Marseille, France - WBA. Referee: Enzo Montero. Both men got off to a good start, but as early as the opening round the champion had felt the weight of Cordoba’s punches, saying afterwards that he had boxed on in a fog from thereon. But Tiozzo (167¾) was not a champion for nothing and he continued to take the fight to the taller Cordoba (167¼) despite being hurt by solid southpaw lefts on the way in. The sixth was the best of the fight as both men gave it everything, but by the eighth Tiozzo was weakening and at the end of the session he was rocked by a right-left. Realising he had Tiozzo in real trouble, Cordoba came out strongly in the ninth and after landing hooks from both hands and dropping the Frenchman with a heavy left the referee stepped in, the finish being timed at 53 seconds.
