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 almost immediately 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 in no condition to defend himself even though he was upright.
