1994-12-10 Orzubek Nazarov w co 2 Joey Gamache, Cumberland County Civic Centre, Portland, Maine, USA - WBA. Referee: John Coyle. Despite the contest being held in the challenger’s back yard, the southpaw champion was not deterred in the slightest as he smashed in jabs, one of which broke Gamache’s nose. Round two had barely started when Gamache (135) was floored by a left hook and on getting back on his feet he was quickly set about by Nazarov (134), who drove in punches with the look of a man hell-bent on completing the job. There was no way that Gamache was going to survive for long and when another cracking left hook landed he was counted out on all fours on the 2.50 mark.
