1988-03-26 Fidel Bassa w pts 12 Dave McAuley, King's Hall, Belfast, Northern Ireland - WBA. Referee: Tony Perez. Scorecards: 116-112, 114-113, 115-113. Wary of the power of McAuley (112), this time round Bassa (111¾) boxed mainly on the outside, piling up the points with left jabs and dancing out of range whenever the Irishman got set to land. Having suffered a broken nose in the seventh round and been knocked down in the ninth, the challenger was always up against it.
