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, being 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.
