2002-08-10 [[Jean-Marc Mormeck]] w rsc 8 [[Dale Brown]], Gaston Deferre Beach Arena, Marseilles, France - WBA. Referee: Luis Pabon. Very competitive for five rounds, with the challenger winning at least two of the rounds, by the sixth Mormeck (188) had got into the swing of things and was speeding up his work rate. In the seventh, Brown (189½), who was forced to take heavy blows to head and body, was cut on both cheeks and ended the session with his right eye closed. With Mormeck totally on top in the eighth, driving Brown before him and taking nothing in return, the referee rescued the latter on the two-minute mark when it was clear that he had nothing left.
