1998-05-30 Tim Austin w rsc 3 Andrian Kaspari, Hilton Convention Centre, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Mills Lane. With too much hand speed and lateral movement for the challenger it would be just a matter of time for Austin (118) to catch up with Kaspari (117), who despite possessing a heavy punch was fighting mainly on the outside. Into the third, with Austin warming to the task, a solid left jab followed by a cracking left hook dumped the Indonesian, the referee wisely calling a halt to the contest with 1.57 on the clock.
