2001-01-13 Zab Judah w rsc 10 Reggie Green, Mohegan Sun Casino, Uncasville, Connecticut, USA - IBF. Referee: Arthur Mercante. While clearly in control the southpaw champion appeared to be doing only as much as he needed to do and in the sixth round, the 81-year-old referee, a veteran of many big fights of yesteryear, asked him to provide more action. Almost immediately Judah (138¼) began to up his work rate and Green (139), with swellings around both eyes, was wobbled several times before he was sent crashing in the tenth by a left hook to the head. No sooner had Green got to his feet another left put him down again, whereupon the referee called a halt with 1.31 of the session left on the clock.
