1994-12-13 Miguel Angel Gonzalez w rtd 5 Calvin Grove, Tingley Coliseum, Alberquerque, New Mexico, USA - WBC. Referee: Joe Cortez. Moving up a weight class to challenge Gonzalez (134½), the veteran Grove (133½) soon found that he didn’t have the power or the speed to operate at this level. Forced to trade punches as Gonzalez closed him down, Grove just couldn’t hurt the champion and in the third he was penalised a point after the former was cut over left eye following a head clash. With Gonzalez accelerating through the fourth, cracking in solid hooks to head and body, the retreating Grove had his nose broken and experiencing breathing difficulties he was retired on his stool at the end of the fifth.
