2002-04-06 Johnny Nelson w co 8 Ezra Sellers, Circus Building, Copenhagen, Denmark - WBO. Referee: Andre Van Grootenbruel. With Nelson (189½) unable to get going over the first six or seven rounds, having been floored when losing his balance in the fourth round and being hurt in the seventh, he finally put it together in the eighth with a right hander that landed on the dangerous challenger’s head and sent him down for the full count. While there were those who thought that Sellers (189) could beat the count, with his eye swelling ominously and obviously still dazed he was counted out in the act of rising.
