1996-09-06 Regilio Tuur w co 1 Jose Vida Ramos, Bally’s Park Place Hotel, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBO. Referee: Benji Esteves. With both men starting with the jab and looking to work their way into the fight, that all changed when Tuur (130) suddenly exploded with a left-right to the challenger’s jaw, sending him crashing on all fours. Crawling across the canvas, Ramos (130) almost got to his feet but fell down again as the referee completed the count at 1.47 of first. Tuur retired in January 1997, thus leaving the WBO version of the title vacant.
