1996-09-07 [[Felix Trinidad]] w rsc 6 [[Ray Lovato]], MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Mitch Halpern. Moving from side to side, the champion held back for a few rounds before beginning to get to Lovato (146½), and by the fifth he was nailing the latter with solid lefts and rights. Although Lovato fought back in the sixth, Trinidad (147) started firing in heavy blows to the head and body, and after backing his man up with jarring hooks and uppercuts the referee had seen enough and called the contest off on the 1.57 mark when the dazed challenger was not fighting back.
