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 much of the contest. However, things were about to change. In the 11th, Tabanas, on realising his only chance of winning was to end matters summarily, came out like a train prior to running on to a tremendous right uppercut, the effects of which saw him counted out at 2.24 of the round.
