Line 1: Line 1:
27 July Tim Austin w rsc 10 Adan Vargas, Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Joe Cortez. Performing like the top man he was known to be, Austin (118), despite being cut on the right eye early on, was too good a boxer for the tough Vargas (117). In a battle of southpaws, Austin was always one move ahead, his instinctive moves and punch-picking a delight to watch. Gradually lowering the boom, the champion really opened up in the tenth round with jabs and heavy crosses and following a crunching left-hand blow to the head the referee jumped in on the 1.03 mark to rescue Vargas from further punishment.
