1999-11-06 [[Johnny Nelson]] w co 4 [[Christophe Girard]], Kingsway Leisure Centre, Widnes, England - WBO. Referee: Mickey Vann. Starting in confident mode, the champion was soon sending out lefts and rights as Girard (182½) was happy to move away and the contest failed to get going until the fourth round. One of the judges even gave Girard the third as Nelson (189¼) threw so few punches. That all changed in the fourth when Nelson began to open up, sending Girard to the floor when landing with a right-hand counter, and after the latter got up he was eventually counted out on the 2.34 mark having being dropped by a long right uppercut to the face.
