1994-05-07 [[Gerald McClellan]] w rsc 1 [[Julian Jackson]], MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Joe Cortez. Having struggled to make the weight, the champion tore into Jackson (160) from the first bell, catching his man with a big right hook barely 15 seconds into the fight. Although Jackson remained upright he was driven to the ropes where he was battered up and down without let up, slipping down once before a left to the body from McClellan (160) sent him crashing to the floor to be counted out on the 1.23 mark.
