1993-06-19 Felix Trinidad w rsc 2 Maurice Blocker, Sports Arena, San Diego, California, USA - IBF. Referee: Robert Byrd. Two inches the taller man, Blocker (146) used his superior height and reach to block the challenger’s punches in the early stages of the opening round, but towards the end he was badly stunned by a right to the jaw and follow-up combinations. The second session saw Trinidad (145½) go on the attack right from the bell, and having pounded Blocker non-stop a crushing right-left-right sent him down, whereupon the referee called the fight off immediately, the finish being timed at 1.19.
