1996-09-14 Kostya Tszyu w rsc 6 Jan Bergman, Entertainment Centre, Newcastle, Australia - IBF. Referee: Billy Males. Having started with the jab-and-move routine, after getting cut on the left eye in the second round Bergman (139¾) lost his discipline and went looking for the champion. He even had some successes and was going relatively well until Tszyu (139½) began to step it up in the fifth. Cut over the right eye early in the sixth, Tszyu went in to overdrive, dropping Bergman with a solid left hook to the jaw, and when the latter got himself up he was smashed down again by a right cross, whereupon the referee immediately called the fight off at 1.23 of the session.
