Line 1: Line 1:
2000-10-07 [[Johnny Nelson]] w rsc 5 [[Adam Watt]], The Dome, Doncaster, England -WBO. Referee: Dave Parris. For three rounds the champion did very little, being quite happy to make Watt (189¾) come to him as he pulled away, and it was not until the fourth that he began to use his jab as an attacking weapon rather than as a defensive one. Nelson (189¼) was still cautious in the fifth, but after Watt appeared to be slowing the latter was given a mandatory ‘eight’ count when floored by a countering short right. Although Watt did not appear to be hurt, on racing in to Nelson he was floored by a crunching left-right to the jaw and it was all over. Not even bothering to count Watt out, fearing a badly broken nose and concussion, the referee stopped the contest on the 2.12 mark to allow him immediate medical attention.
