1997-06-21 Charles Brewer w rsc 5 Gary Ballard, University of South Florida Sun Dome, Tampa, Florida, USA - IBF. Referee: Max Parker. Contesting the vacant IBF title, Brewer (165) proved far too good for Ballard (167¼), knocking him down with a solid right to the jaw after 30 seconds and dropping him twice more in the fifth with left hooks and heavy rights before the referee rescued the game South African at 1.40 of the session. In between, Brewer hit Ballard with everything going and although the latter showed great resilience he was hurt in every round, with his left cheek bleeding badly from the third round, before being despatched.
