1995-09-02 Virgil Hill w pts 12 Drake Thadzi, The Stadium, Wembley, London, England - WBA. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Scorecards: 117-111, 119-110, 118-112. Boxing cleverly, showing an excellent left jab, Hill (174¾) disappointed when only doing enough to make sure of victory over a limited challenger on foreign soil. Thadzi (172¾) tried hard enough, always looking to land the right hand when he could, but in the main Hill was one step ahead of him, picking his target off with stinging left jabs before holding at close quarters. The last round saw Thadzi lashing in right handers at the tiring Hill, but unable to find one that would count.
