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 to call it off on the 2.08 mark. With Zavala only knowing one way to fight when he began to get outpunched his options became limited.
