1998-05-02 [[Hacine Cherifi]] w pts 12 Keith Holmes, The Astroballe Sports Complex, Villeurbanne, France - WBC. Referee: Larry O’Connell. Scorecards: 115-112, 115-112, 115-113. The fight began with Cherifi (158¾) chasing the champion, who was happy to box on the counter, throwing southpaw jabs and solid uppercuts. That became the general pattern as round after round Cherifi took the fight to Holmes (159½), pushing him around and firing in lefts and rights. Prior to the ninth getting underway, Holmes, having been hurt in the previous session, was admonished by his corner for not doing enough work and taking it to heart he pressured Cherifi before dropping him with a solid right hook. Unable to finish the Frenchman off, Holmes had missed his opportunity and he inexplicably allowed himself to be outworked for the remainder of the fight.
