2002-12-07 Wladimir Klitschko w rtd 10 Jameel McCline, Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBO. Referee: Jay Nady. Dictating the fight from the third round onwards, his left jab landing at will, the champion had started to take McCline (263) apart by the seventh before finally stepping up the pace in the tenth. Wobbling McCline with several lefts and rights Klitschko (240) put him down with a big left, and although the challenger made it to his feet and was saved by the bell his corner retired him at the end of the session. McCline had given it his best shot, but had been outclassed.
