1997-06-21 Nana Yaw Konadu w rsc 7 Daorung Chuwatana, Sun Dome, Tampa, Florida, USA - WBA. Referee: Frank Santore Jr. By staying on the outside and using single punches instead of doubling up, Chuwatana (116¾) gave away any initiative to be had to Konadu (117¼), who welcomed it by taking control. In the fourth the champion’s face began to swell alarmingly and he ended the round in a daze. However, it was not until the seventh that Konadu really got to him, a big left enforcing a standing count before the referee called a halt at 2.20 when Chuwatana failed to fight back.
