2001-06-23 Zab Judah w rsc 3 Allan Vester, Mohegan Sun Casino, Uncasville, Connecticut, USA - IBF. Referee: Charles Dwyer. Although he got through the opening round unscathed, actually sending in decent combinations, it would be merely a matter of time for the limited challenger when Judah (138½) came out briskly in the second. Decked by a hard left-right Vester (138) was soon down, and while getting up he was badly punished before being dropped again. Having been saved by the bell Vester once again came under the cosh, but after Judah found a perfect southpaw right hook that smashed into the Dane’s temple and sent him to the canvas with no hope of beating the count the referee halted the uneven contest with just two seconds of the session remaining.
