1993-10-16 Kennedy McKinney w pts 12 Jesus Salud, Caesar’s Palace, Lake Tahoe, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Vic Drakulich. Scorecards: 119-109, 119-109, 118-110. Sporting a good reach advantage, McKinney (122) never allowed his challenger to get into the fight, keeping him off balance, cutting him over the right eye in the third, and generally working him over whenever he got close enough. It was not that Salud (122) was poor, it being more to do with McKinney having his number, but to his credit the challenger was never completely subdued. As McKinney ducked and weaved and slipped punches before firing off returns, most of which found the target, Salud was as game as they come but on the night had met his master.
