1990-09-29 Brian Mitchell w pts 12 Frankie Mitchell, Ghiacchio Ice Palace, Aosta, Italy - WBA. Referee: Gerlando Lucia. Scorecards: 117-113, 116-113, 116-113. Troubled by the long arms of the challenger, and having to absorb some hefty rights early on, Brian Mitchell (129½) fought his way back into the fight in the eighth with lefts and rights doing the damage. In the ninth, Frankie Mitchell (129½), although still proving to be a problem and looking fresh, was forced to take three consecutive right uppercuts and six solid left hooks without reply. The last three rounds saw both men going for the win, but it was the better quality of the champion that took the eyes of all three judges.
