1996-01-20 Kostya Tszyu w rsc 11 Hugo Pineda, The Stadium, Parramatta, Australia - IBF. Referee: Billy Males. Put down by a short right hook in the first round by the unbeaten southpaw challenger, Tszyu (139¾) came back strongly to drop his man with a right to the jaw in the fourth, and although being outboxed in the fifth he repeated the dose in the seventh. By now Tszyu was taking over as Pineda (139½) tired and in the 11th he smashed the Colombian to the floor twice before the referee called it off with 22 seconds of the session remaining.
