2001-02-06 [[Vassily Jirov]] w co 1 [[Alex Gonzalez]], Ice Palace, Almaty, Kazakhstan - IBF. Referee: Eddie Cotton. There was plenty of action while it lasted and Gonzalez (189¾) certainly came to fight, hurting Jirov (188) with a couple of solid shots before the latter responded with some of his own. Once the southpaw champion had the bit between his teeth there was no stopping him at 1.35 of the opening round Gonzalez was counted out after being floored by cracking uppercuts to the head and body. Badly stunned, Gonzalez had to be carried from the dressing room.
