1999-02-13 [[Joe Calzaghe]] w pts 12 [[Robin Reid]], Telewest Arena, Newcastle, England - WBO. Referee: Roy Francis. Scorecards: 116-111, 116-111, 111-116. Boxing way below his best, no doubt due to an injured left hand suffered in the fifth, the champion found Reid (167¾) right in his face throughout the duration of the contest and difficult to shake off. The harder blows, especially right hands, were delivered by Reid and one of them that went low in the eighth saw him deducted a point. Calzaghe (167) had the hand speed and it was that which kept him in front during the last few sessions as both men tired from their exertions.
