1993-09-25 Tracy Harris Patterson w rsc 7 Daniel Zaragoza, Mid-Hudson Civic Centre, Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - WBC. Referee: Wayne Kelly. Coming back from a long layoff it took Patterson (122) some time to find a rhythm, but by the sixth he was beginning to fire on all cylinders and after battering Zaragoza (122) with both hands a right cross opened up a deep cut over the Mexican’s left eye. Zaragoza made it back to his corner for repairs, but after the corner had failed to close the wound the referee took the bloodstained challenger to the ringside doctor, who advised that the fight was over. The finish was timed at 0.53 of the seventh.
