1997-12-13 [[Vince Phillips]] w co 10 [[Freddie Pendleton]], The Amphitheatre, Pompano Beach, Florida, USA - IBF. Referee: Tom Kimmons. Right from the start when Pendleton (140) was nailed by a cracking right to the jaw the writing was on the wall as Phillips (140) looked to make another successful defence. Cut over the left eye, by the fifth round the veteran Pendleton (140) was stumbling around and in the sixth it was no surprise when he was dropped by a cracking right to the temple. Smashed down twice more, in the seventh and ninth rounds, Pendleton somehow managed to keep going, but was finally taken out of it when a left hook to the body dropped him for the full count.
