1989-12-22 Michael Moorer w rsc 6 Mike Sedillo, Auburn Hills Palace, Detroit, Michigan, USA - WBO. Referee: Sam Williams. Under pressure right from the opening bell, the lanky challenger did well to remain upright for so long as Moorer (175) pounded him from both hands. Cut and swollen on the right eye in the third round, Sedillo (175) remained upright well into the sixth before finally succumbing after a big southpaw left had sent him staggering into the ropes. Going in for the kill Moorer let the punches go from both hands to floor Sedillo, and when the latter got up at ‘seven’, his right cheek gashed, the referee stopped the contest. The finish was timed at 2.07.
