10. DEREK JEFFERSON KO 6 MAURICE HARRIS, CONVENTION HALL, ATLANTIC CITY, NEW JERSEY, NOVEMBER 6, 1999
Harris was floored heavily twice in round 2 by a pair of left hooks that might plausibly have curtailed a wild heavyweight slugfest there and then.
Clearly made of sterner stuff, Maurice rallied to put Jefferson down with a short right hand as the latter was a tad over zealous in his quest for an early shower.
A highly underrated ‘club fight classic’ swung this way and that until another big left hook sent Harris to the mat for a third time in Round 6. Against the run of play, he tagged Jefferson once again with a brace of bludgeoning right hands and appeared to be on the brink of a sensational victory when suddenly poleaxed by yet another left hook that put its predecessors firmly in the shade.
