1984-04-15Milton McCrory w rsc 6 (12) Gilles Elbilia, Cobo Hall, Detroit, Michigan, USA - WBC. Referee: Carlos Padilla. Having outboxed his challenger in the opening round, McCrory (146½) started to land heavily with left hooks and solid left jabs in the second, and even at this stage it did not look as though the fight would go the distance. Cut over the left eye in the second, Elbilia (146) appeared decidedly shaky. Although Elbilia made it into the sixth his time was almost up. Dropped by a left hook for the mandatory ‘eight’ count, he was being driven around the ring when the referee stopped it on the 1.08 mark.
