1988-05-17 Calvin Grove w pts 15 Myron Taylor, Sands Casino Hotel, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - IBF. Referee: Randy Neumann. Scorecards: 148-138, 147-140, 147-139. Coming in as a late substitute, although Taylor (124¾) was competitive up until the eighth from then on the champion began to pound his rival with both hands before dominating with the jab. Taylor worked the body well at times, but Grove (125¾) had too much going for him against an opponent who lacked the speed and know-how to swing the fight his way.
