1994-03-04 Gerald McClellan w rsc 1 Gilbert Baptist, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Richard Steele. Coming in at short notice for the indisposed Lamar Parks, Baptist (158) was soon under pressure from the champion before being dropped in a neutral corner after taking a slamming left hook. With Baptist finished from this point, when McClellan (159) put him down twice more in quick succession the referee called a halt. The stoppage was timed at 1.37.
