1998-03-28 Imamu Mayfield w co 11 Terry Dunstan, Ice Arena, Hull, England - IBF. Referee: John Coyle. Both men started slowly before the champion almost had Dunstan (189¾) over after connecting with a big right to the head in the fourth, only for the latter to come back with a good right uppercut as the round closed. In the fifth Dunstan cut Mayfield (188) over the right eye, but was then was deducted a point for backhanding in what had been a good round for him. Fairly even for the next few sessions, Dunston was cut over the right eye in the ninth and was ahead on one of the cards at the end of the tenth before the roof fell a round later. Beaten to the punch by a big right to the head in the 11th, Dunstan crashed to the boards and although getting up he was caught by another right and counted out on the 1.35 mark after being floored again.
