2005-08-06 Jeff Lacy w rtd 7 Robin Reid, St Petersburg Times Forum, Tampa, Florida, USA - IBF. Referee: Jorge Alonso. In control right from the start, the champion was soon banging in big punches and in the third a low left hook dropped Reid (167½) for which the latter was given valuable seconds to recover. Lacy (167) really picked it up in the fourth and having been butted in the fifth he dropped Reid with a right to the jaw after the referee had called ‘break’. Not only was it the first time in his career that Reid had been dropped he also had a point deducted for the head work and almost as soon as he was back in action he was dropped again by a terrific left uppercut to the jaw. Saved by the bell, Reid was floored again in the sixth and in the seventh he was docked another point for holding before being smashed to the floor again by a right uppercut to the jaw following a series of heavy blows. It was no surprise when Reid was retired in his corner at the end of the session, having taken far more than was good for him.
