1993-06-09 [[Daniel Jimenez]] w pts 12 [[Duke McKenzie]], Lewisham Theatre, Catford, London, England - WBO. Referee: Rudy Battle. Scorecards: 115-114, 115-113, 115-115. A slow start and a ninth-round knockdown - a left followed by a right to the body doing the damage - cost McKenzie (121) his title against Jimenez (121), who showed good work rate and hand speed to further impress the judges. He was also effective at close quarters and slipping punches. Although McKenzie got his jab working, at times he seemed weary and only seemed himself towards the end of the contest when he realised he had it all to do and went looking for Jimenez to no avail.
