Line 1: Line 1:
1996-08-31 [[Nate Miller]] w rsc 7 [[James Heath]], Point Theatre, Dublin, Ireland - WBA. Referee: Carlos Berrocal. In control throughout, the champion took his time regardless of the fact that he had Heath (187½) over from a left hook in the opening session and had him at his mercy right up until the finish. Picking off Heath at close quarters or at distance, Miller (189½) wore his man down with solid blows to head and body before stepping up in the seventh. With limited credentials, Heath had not surprisingly been outclassed and he was counted out with six seconds of the session remaining after being floored by a right-left hook to the head.
