1990-04-28 Michael Moorer w co 1 Mario Melo, Taj Mahal Hotel & Casino, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBO. Referee: Joe O’Neil. Yet another contest where the opposition could have been better saw Moorer (174) go for his fellow southpaw right from the opening bell, staggering him with straight lefts and putting him on alert. Having hurt Melo (174) with a left to the body, the champion quickly brought the bout to a finish with a cracking left to the head that saw the Argentinian crash to the floor to be counted out at 1.52 of the session.
