2003 — Lennox Lewis retains his heavyweight title when a cut stops Vitali Klitschko after six brawling rounds. All three ringside judges had Klitschko winning 58-56, but ring doctor Paul Wallace orders referee Lou Moret to stop the fight.

2005 — Detroit, led by Chauncey Billups’ 21 points, forces Game 7 of the NBA Finals with a 95-86 victory at San Antonio. The Pistons become the first road team to win Game 6 of the NBA Finals since the 2-3-2 format was implemented in 1985.
