1995-01-07 Alejandro Gonzalez w rtd 10 Kevin Kelley, Freeman Coliseum, San Antonio, Texas, USA - WBC. Referee: Laurence Cole. Right from the opening bell Gonzalez (126) imposed himself on the southpaw champion, jolting him with solid jabs and long rights, and damaging his left eye early on before the latter temporarily fought back. In the sixth round when Kelley (126) was dropped to the floor by a crushing right to the head it looked all over. However, after rising at ‘six’, his right eye almost shut, he came back to sensationally drop Gonzalez in the eighth. By the ninth Kelley was right back in it, but in the tenth he again took a terrific battering, and although refusing to go down he was retired by his corner at the end of the session.
