1999-03-27 [[Tim Austin]] w co 9 [[Sergio Aguila]], Jai-Alai Fronton, Miami, Florida, USA - IBF. Referee: Jorge Alonso. Being floored by a heavy left hook in the fourth round came as a wake-up call for Austin (118), who had been having things his own way up until then. Once Austin had got his jab going again the dream was over for his fellow southpaw challenger. Bleeding badly from a cut over the right eye in the seventh, Aguila (117½), still giving it a real go, was dropped in the eighth and the fight should have been stopped there and then. Coming out for the ninth, both eyes now cut and his nose obviously broken, Aguila was under immense pressure when he dropped to one knee to take the full count at 1.10 of the session.
