  • Hill failed to answer the bell for the 9th round.
  • On July 17th, 2002, France's Council to Prevent and Fight Doping announced that Hill tested positive for two banned substances in his post-fight drug test. According the the announcement, the tests revealed traces of a banned diuretic and a drug used to treat inflammation. Hill did not appear at the hearing or contest the results and was subsequently banned for two years from fighting in France. [1]
