A crowd of 16,332 packed into Madison Square Garden, New York to see WBA and IBF world heavyweight champion Riddick 'Big Daddy' Bowe make the first defence of the titles he won from Evander Holyfield three months earlier, against Akron, Ohio's Michael Dokes (50-3-2).
Bowe was a 20-1 favourite and made short work of the 35-year-old former WBA titleholder, battering him to defeat in the first round.
Referee Joe Santarpia waived the fight off at 2:19 of the 1st round.
