1994-02-19 Kennedy McKinney w co 5 Jose Rincones, Carousel Casino Resort, Temba, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Boxing lackadaisically for the opening four rounds, the champion merely followed Rincones (121) around, and apart from the latter occasionally jumping in with wild punches that were easily avoided there was barely any action. However, midway during the fifth, after Rincones decided to trade with McKinney (121¾) he paid the price when he was belted by solid rights to the head before being knocked flat on his back to be counted out on the 2.40 mark.
