1998-05-02 Fabrice Tiozzo w rsc 1 Terry Ray, Astro Bullet Arena, Villeurbanne, France - WBA. Referee: John Coyle. Having exchanged left jabs from the opening bell, the champion quickly took advantage of an opening when dropping the 35-year-old Ray (187¾) with a left hook-right cross. Although getting up Ray was immediately in trouble and was downed again by heavy shots from both hands as Tiozzo (189½) opened up. Clambering to his feet, Ray was rescued by the referee on the 60 second mark after being put down for the third time and being in no condition to defend himself even though he was upright.
