2000-04-08 Randall Bailey w rtd 6 Rocky Martinez, 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 even though he was 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 despite suffering from a cut left eye and damage to his nose. And he was still in there coming up for the sixth. Having absorbed a solid right to the head that rocked him, with the cuts beginning to worsen after Martinez got back to his corner at the end of the session he was retired.
