1996-05-18 Felix Trinidad w co 5 Freddie Pendleton, Mirage Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Richard Steele. Both men came out shooting hard jabs before the champion upped the pace when beginning to open up with the right hand to catch Pendleton (147) more and more. Pendleton was still boxing well. However, although coming on strongly in the fourth, Trinidad (147) really began to let the punches go in the fifth, and at 1.30 of the session the former was counted out after being dropped heavily by a solid left hook to the body.
