2001-04-14 Nelson Dieppa w co 11 Andy Tabanas, MSG Theatre, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - WBO. Referee: Arthur Mercante Jr. With the title still vacant, Tabanas v Fahlan Sakkreerin having failed to register a winner, Dieppa (107) and Tabanas (107½) made a careful start which continued throughout the contest much to the boredom of the paying customer. However, things were about to change. Up until the 11th, Dieppa was probably in front and Tabanas, on realising his only chance of winning was to end matters summarily, came out like a train before running on to a tremendous right uppercut, the effects of which saw him counted out at 2.24 of the round.
