1999-05-22 Floyd Mayweather w co 9 Justin Juuko, Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Mitch Halpern. Dictating from start to finish, the champion sped around the late substitute, Juuko (130), as he sent in flurries of jabs and an assortment of other blows that not only confused the latter but also the audience who could barely make them out. Even when Juuko occasionally got close, Mayweather (130) would show his defensive skills off before getting back in control with the jab and by the sixth it had become almost an exhibition. The next three rounds saw much of the same until three right hands to the head followed by a shove sent Juuko down to be counted out at 1.20 of the ninth.
