1997-02-22 Nate Miller w rsc 2 Alexander Gurov, The Theatre, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - WBA. Referee: Jorge Alonso. Having his first contest in America, Gurov (190) was unable to bother the champion with his southpaw stance even though he was a good three inches taller. With Miller (188) looking to jab and work the body in the opening session it was already obvious that Gurov was in for a tough night and in the second he was quickly in trouble. Dropped by a right to the jaw and just about making it up at the count of ‘nine’, the former European champion was floored twice more before being stopped at 1.54 on the three-knockdowns-in-a-round ruling.
