2004-10-02 [[Jeff Lacy]] w rsc 8 [[Syd Vanderpool]], Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Robert Byrd. Fighting to decide who should wear the IBF belt after [[Sven Ottke]]’s retirement, Vanderpool (167), a crafty southpaw, began well with the jab before Lacy (168) picked up the pace in the fourth when landing well with rights and lefts. By the sixth, Lacy was into his stride, shaking Vanderpool up with left hooks, and he built on that in the eighth before hurting the latter badly enough in the eighth with solid uppercuts to force the referee to stop the fight in his favour. Timed at 1.37 of the eighth, the finish saved the brave Canadian from taking more than he had to.
