1993-07-16 Alfred Cole w pts 12 Glenn McCrory, Prospect Mira Sports Palace, Moscow, Russia - IBF. Referee: Rudy Battle. Scorecards: 118-109, 118-109, 117-110. Given the opportunity to regain his old title McCrory (190) gave it his best shot, but was ultimately found wanting against a champion who pressured him throughout and carried more firepower. Fought at a fast pace, McCrory did well to stand up against Cole (190) despite having to get off the floor twice in the sixth round in order to do so. Although Cole was a clear winner, McCrory, who had to get weight off at the weigh-in, showed his mettle in the tenth when gamely hanging on to make it to the final bell after being hurt by a body shot.
