1996-05-24 Kostya Tszyu w co 4 Corey Johnson, Entertainment Centre, Sydney, Australia - IBF. Referee: Billy Males. Taking the fight to the southpaw challenger right from the opening bell, Tszyu (139¾) began driving in solid rights to the body and in the third round the pressure finally told. Having been dropped for ‘nine’ in that session, Johnson (140) lasted out the remainder of the round before a continued body assault, culminating with a left hook and two rights, saw him counted out with 39 seconds of the fourth still left on the clock.
