1995-03-09 Regilio Tuur w pts 12 Tony Pep, Martin Hall, Groningen, Holland - WBO. Referee: Joe O’Neill. Scorecards: 117-111, 119-109, 116-112. Boxing on the counter and utilising his height-and-reach advantages, the challenger made life difficult for Tuur (129½), who was forced to chase the fight both aggressively and cagily. The contest followed the same pattern round after round until Pep (129¾), realising he was well behind, stepped up the pace in the ninth to nail Tuur with three-punch combinations. Although Pep was having a lot more success at this stage of the fight, Tuur, still capable of mounting strong attacks of his own, had plenty in hand to run out a clear winner.
