1996-02-10 Felix Trinidad w rtd 4 Rodney Moore, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Mitch Halpern. Having lost in two previous challenges, Moore (147) started fast when firing in wild rights. There was more of the same in the second before Trinidad (147) started to break Moore up with body punches in the third as the latter tried desperately to survive. Dropped from a series of blows in the fourth, Moore got up at ‘nine’ before he was hit very close to the border on a couple of occasions prior to being put down again for ‘nine’ by a cracking left uppercut to the temple. It came as no surprise when the corner retired Moore during the interval between the fourth and fifth rounds.
