  • Tim Dahlberg of the Associated Press reported on August 20, 1995:
Bruce Seldon, fighting in the shadow of Mike Tyson's return to the ring, used his jab to stop a bloodied Joe Hipp in the 10th round Saturday night to retain his WBA heavyweight title. Hipp was bleeding from a big cut under his left eye and his right eye was swollen shut when referee Richard Steele finally moved in to stop the scheduled 12-round bout at 1:47 of the 10th round.
