2002-06-08 Manny Pacquiao w rsc 2 Jorge Elicier Julio, The Pyramid, Memphis, Tennessee, USA - IBF. Referee: Bill Clancy. Following a tame opening round, the action fairly exploded in the second when Pacquiao (120½) two-fistedly tore into the challenger to drop him for a count of ‘six’ with a southpaw straight left. Dusted off and given the all clear by the third man, Julio (122) was quickly at the mercy of Pacquiao, who was by now unstoppable, and another cracking left floored him again, this time for an ‘eight’ count. On getting up and at the mercy of Pacquiao as he reeled all over the place, the referee stopped the fight on the 1.09 mark to save Julio from taking further punishment.
