Coming back to challenge Robinson (125½), having earlier lost the title in September 1992, it was clear that McMillan (125¼) had not properly recovered from the dislocated left shoulder which had put him out of that contest, as he went down on points. There was not really a great deal between them, but Robinson’s constant aggression and more solid punches gave him the edge, while McMillan, who also damaged his right hand and was cut on the left eye, failed to take the fight to the champion.
