1999-09-24 Keith Holmes w pts 12 Andrew Council, MCI Centre, Washington DC, USA - WBC. Referee: Arthur Mercante. Scorecards: 116-110, 116-109, 117-109. Having learnt from a previous meeting, the champion outboxed Council (159½) for much of the time, using an accurate southpaw jab coupled to a solid defence. Despite being occasionally caught, especially by a left hook in the second, Holmes (158½) boxed his way out of trouble and in the ninth he dropped Council flat on his face with a terrific right hook. Although Council made it to his feet and lasted the round out he was hammered throughout the last three sessions, but showed a good chin to reach the final bell.
