2001-03-03 Tim Austin w rsc 6 Jesus Salvador Perez, Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Kenny Bayless. Although Perez (117) proved to be an awkward customer, once Austin (117) had worked him out and then got to town the end was always in sight. Down in the third and fifth rounds, the challenger was again dumped early in the sixth and, after getting up, he ran into a countering right hook that dropped him again. By this time the referee had seen enough and called a halt on the 2.02 mark.
