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, the pressure finally telling in the third round. 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.
