1999-09-18 Vassiliy Jirov w co 10 Dale Brown, Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Richard Steele. Making his first defence Jirov (188) quickly moved to the centre of the ring, soon having the challenger moving away from vicious southpaw rights to head and body. Although Brown (188) did reasonably well in the third, in the fifth he was cut over the left eye and dropped by two heavy lefts just before the bell. However, he came back well to unbalance Jirov on several occasions, cutting him by the side of the right eye before being counted out with just eight seconds of the tenth remaining after being flattened by a terrific left to the body.
