2001-02-03 Kostya Tszyu w rtd 7 Sharmba Mitchell, Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA/WBC. Referee: Joe Cortez. In a battle to unify two of the four main titles, the unfortunate Mitchell (139), who carried an injured left knee into the ring, was forced to retire on his stool at the end of the seventh round when the pain and lack of mobility was just too much to bear. Although being docked a point in the fourth for pushing, Tszyu (140) was three rounds ahead on the cards, but had failed to put his southpaw opponent away despite having him down for unrecorded knockdowns on several occasions.
