2004-07-24 [[Arturo Gatti]] w co 2 [[Leonard Dorin]], Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBC. Referee: Randy Neumann. Right from the opening bell, with the challenger appearing to be too small for the weight division, Gatti (139¼) was looking to use the left as his main punch. After a quiet first round it was apparent that Dorin (139) would have to get closer to Gatti if he wanted to win and that was his tactic in the second. Although he was able to push Gatti back a couple of times, Dorin was obliged to take lefts and rights in return, but by now the champion was beginning to motor. The finish came after Gatti had thrown a left-right-left combination to the head before suddenly dropping in a terrific left hook to Dorin’s side that sent him down for the full count with just five seconds of the session remaining on the clock.
