1998-03-28 Charles Brewer w rsc 10 Herol Graham, Convention Centre, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - IBF. Referee: Earl Morton. Given another opportunity to win a world title Graham (167) appeared to be on well on his way to victory after six rounds, having dropped the champion twice in the third with solid southpaw lefts to the head and generally outboxing him. From the seventh onwards, however, Brewer (168) finally got himself going, and although Graham scored well in the ninth he was beginning to show signs of tiredness. Dead level on the cards coming into the tenth despite being kept at bay in the early stages of the session, after Brewer finally began to land with heavy shots from both hands when Graham slumped to the floor he was rescued by the referee on the 1.34 mark.
