Aired on: ShoBox: The New Generation

Ronald Hearns, with ex-champ father Thomas 'Hitman' Hearns in attendance in Montreal, moved a step closer to a televised HBO showdown with 25-0 John Duddy scheduled for January 17, 2009, at 154 pounds. Hearns, now 21-0 with 17 kayos, battered Paul Clavette from the fourth round on. In the sixth, Clavette took a knee while in trouble, and upon arising, took a beating till he was held up by the ropes and got counted again. Hearns continued jab combinations and right hand power punches till the referee stopped it. Clavette falls to 14-2-1 with two kayos. This fight appeared on the undercard of Lucian Bute vs. Librado Andrade (1st meeting).
