2005-11-05 Jeff Lacy w rsc 2 Scott Pemberton, Caesar’s Palace, Lake Tahoe, Stateline, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Vic Drakulich. Although a good fighter Pemberton (168) was several levels below the champion, and right from the opening bell he was forced to use every part of the ring to survive the heavy bombs being thrown at him. Eventually, in the second round, Lacy (168) caught up with his rival when a big right put Pemberton down for ‘nine’. Back on his feet, despite ducking low and moving away Pemberton was sent crashing in his own corner following a right hook that hit him flush. Without bothering to take up the count the referee stopped the fight with one second of the session remaining.
