2005-05-20 O’Neil Bell w pts 12 Dale Brown, Seminole Hard Rock Casino, Hollywood, Florida, USA - IBF. Referee: Armando Garcia. Scorecards: 115-113, 116-112, 117-111. After Kelvin Davis was stripped for failing to defend against Bell, the man from Georgia made good his opportunity when outscoring Brown (198¾) in a tough fight that many thought could have gone either way. It was the skill and punch picking of Brown against the constant aggression of Bell (199), but by the fourth he was cut over the right eye and had a swelling on the other optic, testament to the latter’s headwork and punching power. Despite boxing on the back foot, Brown continued to pick Bell off with the jab and right-hand counters and although ahead on the punch stats, at the final bell it was Bell, who forced the fight throughout, who got the decision.
