2000-08-05 Zab Judah w rsc 4 Terron Millett, Mohegan Sun Casino, Uncasville, Connecticut, USA - IBF. Referee: Michael Ortega. Defending his title against the man who forfeited it, the speedy Judah (138) got down to business immediately when sending in thudding southpaw left crosses that hurt Millett (139½) right down to his boots. Then, without warning, Judah was tagged and dropped by a solid left hook, but surprised more than badly hurt he got up and finished the opening round strongly. With Judah back in business it was Millett’s turn to be smashed to the canvas, by a left cross in the second, and although the third saw both men exploding punches there were no knockdowns. The fourth, however, was destined to be the last. There was no doubt that Judah was looking to finish it and with Millett’s defence now awry, he floored his challenger twice more before the referee called it off with 13 seconds of the session remaining.
