1987-11-21 Virgil Hill w pts 12 Rufino Angulo, Pierre De Coubertin Stadium, Paris, France - WBA. Referee: John Coyle. Scorecards: 118-111, 120-107, 120-107. After dropping Angulo (173¼) with a left hook counter in the opening round the champion settled down to control the contest with an accurate lead, picking his man off throughout. Angulo was always a danger, being strong and aggressive, but lacking the tools to worry Hill (174½) unduly many of his wild swings were avoided with ease. Occasionally Hill was forced to give ground, but with it never more than momentarily Angulo was usually made to pay.
