1991-11-21 Gianfranco Rosi w pts 12 Gilbert Baptist, Sports Palace, Perugia, Italy - IBF. Referee: Denny Nelson. Scorecards: 118-111, 120-108, 120-108. In what was a fairly mundane affair, the champion used an accurate left jab and right cross to catch the hard-punching Baptist (152¾) time and again as he rumbled in. Although the game Baptist never stopped trying, Rosi (153½) was just too fast and too good for the American, having him covered all the way. Regardless that he was given credit by one of the judges for never taking a backward step, Baptist received a boxing lesson.
