1995-05-27 Frankie Liles w rsc 6 Frederic Seillier, Broward County Convention Centre, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - WBA. Referee: Bill Connors. Almost put down in the opening session by the southpaw champion Seillier (167) kept ploughing forward despite taking a battering. Even then it was clear that he had little or no chance of winning. In fact, the only punches that bothered Liles (166¼) were those below the belt, for which Seillier was continually warned. In the fourth round Seillier was stunned on more than one occasion as Liles began to pick up the pace, and in the fifth the Frenchman looked a sorry sight as blood poured from a cut on the left eye. Rarely missing, after Liles crashed in a batch of combination punches a short right to the head floored Seillier. Although the challenger got up and was allowed to continue he was barely able to stand, eating up punch upon punch before the referee finally stopped the one-sided affair with 16 seconds of the sixth remaining.
