1993-07-17 Kennedy McKinney w rsc 3 Rudy Zavala, The Pyramid, Memphis, Tennessee, USA - IBF. Referee: Chris Wollesen. Defending against a dangerous opponent McKinney (121) had to be careful, but he took the first round with jabs and uppercuts and stayed at close quarters in the second, regardless of having a massive reach advantage. The third saw McKinney crack in right after right to drop Zavala (122) three times before the referee decided enough was enough and called it off on the 2.08 mark. Zavala only knew one way to fight and when he began to get outpunched his options became limited.
