2000-09-16 [[Sharmba Mitchell]] w pts 12 [[Felix Flores]], MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Tony Weeks. Scorecards: 116-111, 116-111, 116-113. Knocked down in the fourth by right uppercuts to the body and jaw and saved by the bell, the champion soon got back on track when peppering Flores (139½) with good combinations to add to his points total. Although Flores was always dangerous, and was credited with winning the seventh and eighth, he was never able to repeat his fourth-round performance as Mitchell (139) kept his hands up from there on in to box his way to victory.
