1991-01-26 Maurizio Stecca w rsc 5 Armando Juan Reyes, Montichiari Sports Palace, Sassari, Italy - WBO. Referee: Ismael Fernandez. Following on from Jorge Paez’s decision to hand his WBO belt in, when Stecca and Reyes came together to contest the vacant title it was the former Olympic champion who came through to win decisively. Well ahead on points after four rounds against the little-known Reyes (125), and having knocked the Dominican down in the second with a good combination, Stecca (125½) was awarded the fight in the fifth when the referee controversially deemed that his opponent was not fit to continue with 36 seconds of the session remaining.
