1989-03-30 Jorge Paez w co 11 Calvin Grove, The Bullring, Calafia, Mexicali, Mexico - IBF. Referee: Bobby Ferrara. Despite holding his own for the first eight rounds of a rematch, Grove (126) started to wilt in the ninth. It was then that the champion came on strong and Grove was dropped twice in the tenth before the effects of a terrific left uppercut saw him counted out after 62 seconds of the 11th. It had been thought that the 12-round distance would suit Grove, but as in their previous contest Paez (126) was just too powerful for him.
