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. Never at risk, Miller (189½) had Heath at his mercy right up until the finish. Picking off Heath at close quarters or at distance, Miller wore his man down with solid blows to head and body before stepping it up in the seventh. Clearly without a chance, Heath was counted out with six seconds of the session remaining after being floored by a right-left hook to the head.
