2003-02-21 Wayne Braithwaite w rsc 4 Ravea Springs, Miccosukee Indian Gaming Centre, Miami, Florida, USA - WBC. Referee: Tommy Kimmons. Making his first defence, Braithwaite (186) quickly got down to business against his fellow southpaw opponent and by the end of the first it had already become a slugging session. By the third there was only going to be one winner and in the fourth Braithwaite finally caught up with Springs (184½), dropping him with a couple of rights to the head. On being allowed to fight on, Springs was then put down by two heavy lefts to the head and this time, at 2.41 of the session, the referee stopped the fight when ruling that the challenger was unable to continue.
