1984-01-14 Milton McCrory w rsc 6 (12) Milton Guest, Sterling Heights Premier Centre, Detroit, Michigan, USA - WBC. Referee: Zack Clayton. Knocked down twice by left hooks to the head in the opening session did not augur well for Guest (147), the champion continuing to hammer him in the second before cutting him over the left eye while giving him a steady beating. Although outboxed and outclassed, Guest gamely stuck to his task, but was dropped again in the third, fifth and sixth sessions before McCrory, punishing him with both hands, stepped it up in the sixth. Now, with it being just a matter of time, McCrory eventually found the finishing blow, a right uppercut to the jaw. Despite Guest making it to his feet the referee stopped the contest six seconds after the bell had ended the round.
