1997-12-19 [[Ronald Wright]] w rtd 6 [[Adrian Dodson]], London Arena, Millwall, London, England - WBO. Referee: Lou Moret. Making his third appearance in succession in a British ring, the champion gave yet another superlative display when dismantling a fellow southpaw in Dodson (153) to retain his title. Dodson was seen as a dangerous opponent, but Wright (153¾) handled him with ease while displaying his trademark fast jab and solid left crosses to head and body, backed up by sound defensive work and movement. Cut over the left eye in the fifth, having taken a breather Wright quickly got down to business in the sixth and began to work Dodson over, but despite the latter going back to his corner with his left eye closed it still came as a surprise when he quit at the end of the session.
