1997-01-11 [[Khalid Rahilou]] w rsc 11 [[Frankie Randall]], The Arena, Nashville, Tennessee, USA - WBA. Referee: Rafael Ramos. Fighting on his own patch, the champion was not the man he once was after Rahilou (139) started the contest with the left jab and countered well before picking up the pace in the fifth. From that point on most of the rounds belonged to Rahilou and Randall (139½) became increasingly desperate, especially in the tenth when he was being picked apart. In the 11th the wheels came off for Randall and after he had been slammed into a corner by four consecutive head punches, and was being hit without reply, the referee jumped in to call a halt after 58 seconds of the session had elapsed.
