2002-08-24 Derrick Gainer tdraw 2 Daniel Seda, Roberto Clemente Walker Stadium, Carolina, Puerto Rico - WBA. Referee: Jose Rivera. After taking a few moments to look his challenger over, Gainer (126) suddenly exploded into action with a long southpaw left that sent Seda (126) crashing for a mandatory ‘eight’ count. Back in action, Seda was lucky that Gainer hung back before striking with venom again immediately prior to the bell, only for him to stand off again in the second. Finally making a positive move, Gainer belted Seda into the ropes before the pair clashed heads as the latter dipped inside a long overarm left. With blood pouring from the left eye, making it impossible for Gainer to continue, the referee called it off with 47 seconds of the round left. As less than two rounds had been completed it should be recognised as a technical draw.
