2000-12-02 [[William Joppy]] w rsc 4 [[Jonathan Reid]], Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Joe Cortez. As a late substitute for [[Guillermo Jones]] and then [[Julio Garcia]], Reid (160) proved no match for the champion, being totally outclassed. On the back foot from the beginning Reid got through the opening two rounds unscathed before he was blasted to the floor in the third by a salvo of punches and then saved by the bell when under another heavy attack. The fourth round saw more of the same and when Joppy (159½) smashed Reid down with a solid left-right combination the referee immediately stopped the fight with 17 seconds of the session remaining.
