1994-12-10 Felix Trinidad w rsc 8 Oba Carr, Baseball Stadium, Monterrey, Mexico - IBF. Referee: Robert Gonzalez. Despite being dropped in the second round by a straight right, the champion was quickly up, and after being outjabbed by Carr (145) in the third he came on in the next session to get his left going while hammering solid rights. By the sixth Trinidad (146½) was catching Carr repeatedly with long rights to the head and although he somehow survived a bad seventh the latter was sent down by two cracking rights to the head in the eighth. Having taken the mandatory count and back in the firing line, Carr was soon over from another right, and not long after was down again. Trinidad now had the bit between the teeth, and when Carr got up for the third time he was hammered by both hands until the referee called a halt with 19 seconds of the session remaining.
