1992-05-13 Rafael Del Valle w co 1 Duke McKenzie, Royal Albert Hall, Kensington, London, England - WBO. Referee: Michael Fischer. Having only his 13th pro fight, Del Valle (117½) created something of a sensation when catching McKenzie (117) cold, a stiff left jab putting the champion down for ‘nine’. With McKenzie on unsteady legs, Del Valle followed up with big right-left hooks that took the Englishman’s legs away and left him to be counted out, spread-eagled on the canvas, after just 116 seconds of action.
