2003-10-10 Silvio Branco w rsc 11 Mehdi Sahnoune, Sports Palace, Marseilles, France - WBA. Referee: Guillermo Perez. Making his first defence, Sahnoune (175) made a reasonable start before the 37-year-old Branco (175) got his left jab going well to take control of the contest. Badly hurt in the fourth, Sahnoune battled on before a badly swollen right eye made it even more difficult for him. Coming out for the 11th, way down on the scorecards, Sahnoune was dropped by a big right to the head as Branco went for the finish and at 2.15 of the session the referee stopped what had become an unequal contest.
