2000-04-08 Randall Bailey (USA) w rtd 6 Rocky Martinez (USA), Bercy Sports Palace, Paris, France - WBO. Referee: Samuel Viruet. Most people would have expected a knockdown at least in this one, but Martinez (139½) defied all of the champion’s best efforts despite being dominated throughout. Making a fast start, Bailey (139½) was soon pumping out left jabs as a prelude for the right to follow, but Martinez made it difficult for him and although suffering from a cut left eye and damage to his nose he was still in there coming up for the sixth. Having absorbed a solid right to the head that rocked him, the cuts had begun to worsen and after Martinez got back to his corner at the end of the session he was retired.
