2005-03-05 Jeff Lacy w rsc 7 Rubin Williams, Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Tony Weeks. Williams (167) surprised all by attacking the champion with solid long jabs and taking the best he could muster before being stopped after 47 seconds of the seventh round. All three judges gave Williams the fourth when he went punch for punch against the tank-like Lacy (167) and he continued to show resolve even when bombarded by vicious left hooks in every session. The fight ended when Lacy, punching away for all his worth, was using Williams’ head as target practice with the latter trapped and unable to get off the ropes.
