2003-12-13 : John Ruiz 241 lbs beat Hasim Rahman 246 lbs by UD in round 12 of 12


Ruiz, who became interim titleholder with this victory, was upgraded to WBA heavyweight champion after Roy Jones Jr. vacated the title on February 20, 2004, choosing to fight Antonio Tarver for the WBC and IBO light heavyweight titles (already in 2003), rather than Ruiz.
