2000-03-11 Juan Carlos Gomez w rsc 2 Mohamed Siluvangi, Hanse Hall, Lubeck, Germany - WBC. Referee: Larry O’Connell. Right from the opening bell it was clear that Siluvangi (187½) had no realistic chance of beating the heavy-handed champion, who boxed as he pleased in the first round before finishing him off in the second. Caught again and again with the southpaw jab, Siluvangi had nowhere to go as Gomez (189½) hunted him down and the fight was stopped at 2.35 of the second after the African-born Frenchman was deemed to be in no position to defend himself on getting up from a countering left to the jaw.
