Roger Mayweather (54-11, 32 KOs)
vs. Kostya Tszyu (14-0, 10 KOs)
June 25, 1995, Newcastle Entertainment Centre, Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia

With only one win over a name-brand opponent -- the aging Livingstone Bramble -- there were those who wondered why he deserved a shot at the IBF crown. "The Black Mamba" was the 34-year-old IBO welterweight king, but was dropping down to face Tszyu on enemy turf -- Australia.
