1991-08-17 Darrin Van Horn w co 3 John Jarvis, Bren Events Centre, Irvine, California, USA - IBF. Referee: Lou Moret. The confident champion, making the first defence of his title, was soon landing solid hooks to the body with Jarvis (168) content to keep his distance. Coming out fast in the second Van Horn (168) hurt Jarvis with heavy lefts and rights, and although the latter hit back hard it did not dissuade his opponent who started the third in the same vein. After a bout of heavy hitting, when Van Horn beat Jarvis to the punch the challenger was counted out at 1.11 having been dropped by a left hook to the body followed by a right cross to the jaw.
