2005-06-25 [[Carlos Maussa]] w co 7 [[Vivian Harris]], Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBA. Referee: Albert Brown. In trying to knock out the ungainly Maussa (139) quickly in order to secure a match with the winner of [[Floyd Mayweather]] v [[Arturo Gatti]], Harris (139) spent several rounds getting nowhere and, cut over the right eye, he began to keep his distance in the fifth. Having been badly hurt by Maussa in the sixth, Harris started the seventh with some trepidation and with the Colombian taking the initiative he was immediately put under pressure. After softening up Harris with a series of wild-looking blows, Maussa threw a long left hook that caught the champion flush on the jaw and dropped him to be counted out 43 seconds into the session.
