1989-02-19 Michael Moorer w rsc 6 Frankie Swindell, The High School Gym, Monessen, Pennsylvania, USA - WBO. Referee: Andy DePaul. Building up a good lead in the opening three rounds with solid southpaw jabs, crosses and body shots, Moorer (174) seemed to be well on his way to victory before Swindell (175) shook him up badly at the end of the fourth. Although Moorer came back to some degree in the fifth his left eye was beginning to close and once again Swindell finished strongly. Getting his jab to work in the sixth was the key for Moorer, and after catching Swindell with heavy combinations the referee stopped the contest on the 2.50 mark when the latter was on the ropes being battered without return.
