2002-09-07 [[Ronald Wright]] w disq 8 [[Bronco McKart]], Rose Garden, Portland, Oregon, USA - IBF. Referee: Mike Fischer. Having already outpointed the challenger twice, Wright (153¾) confidently expected to do the hat-trick and he made a good start against his fellow southpaw when taking the opening round. Although McKart (153½) came back well in the second, Wright was soon back into his stride and began to vary his shots, especially when driving in body shots. Unfortunately, McKart didn’t have the same accuracy as Wright when going to the body and he had two point deductions in the sixth, one in the seventh and another in the eighth before being disqualified at 2.33 of that session. He was being outboxed comprehensively at that stage and it was just one warning too many.
