1991-03-07 Lindell Holmes w pts 12 Antoine Byrd, Sports Palace, Madrid, Spain - IBF. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. Scorecards: 115-113, 117-111, 113-115. Up against a clever southpaw opponent in Byrd (164½), although the champion seemed to be in charge for long periods he was never able to set his man up for a stoppage. Byrd, to his credit, always seemed to be able to finish strongly in the last part of each round, but coming into the tenth when it really mattered he was too tired to make a final effort to turn the fight around. Following that, Holmes (165½) stepped up the pace to make sure that the decision went in his favour.
