1995-08-23 Ike Quartey w rsc 4 Andrew Murray, Sports Palace, Le Cannet, France - WBA. Referee: Carlos Berrocal. Although the southpaw challenger started well when outworking Quartey with snappy punches from both hands, right on the bell to end the first round he was dropped by a right to the jaw and barely beat the count. Despite Murray showing a good recovery he was always running second best to Quartey, and when the latter opened up in the third the man from Guyana went back to his corner cut on the right eye. Forty-four seconds into the fourth the referee called it off after a solid right from Quartey sent Murray stumbling backwards, bleeding badly from the left eye.
