1993-02-20 [[Michael Nunn]] w co 1 [[Dan Morgan]], Aztec Stadium, Mexico City, Mexico - WBA. Referee: Enzo Montero. In what was a mismatch from the start, Morgan (167¾) lacked the tools with which to keep the strong southpaw champion away from him and was soon in difficulty. After trying to walk through the punches without success, Morgan was sent down for ‘eight’, having taken heavy blows to the head, and on getting to his feet he was soon in trouble again. Dropped by a cracking left as Nunn (168) went all out for the finish, Morgan was counted out at 2.59 of the opening session in the act of rising.
