1995-11-04 Philip Holiday w pts 12 Rocky Martinez, The Superbowl, Sun City, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Scorecards: 118-111, 120-108, 117-111. Coming into the fight with an unbeaten record, Martinez (134¾) was expected to give the champion a good battle, but by the third round it was apparent that he was there as the ‘opponent’. Cut over the right eye in the fourth, Martinez was beginning to be punished by combinations to head and body and although he never gave up he was too one-paced and lacked variety to make an impression. Apart from the first and 11th sessions, the American based Mexican was mostly out of range and failed to make an impact on the scorecards as Holiday (134¼) won almost as he pleased.
