1994-03-26 Henry Maske w rsc 9 Ernesto Magdaleno, Westphalia Hall, Dortmund, Germany - IBF. Referee: Sam Williams. Although Magdaleno (174¾) tried to turn the contest into a slugging session from the opening bell, the southpaw champion was having none of it when rocking his man with straight lefts. Always in control despite it being a tough fight that saw him sustaining a swelling to his left eye, Maske (174¾) continued to bang away with jabs and hooks. Maske’s persistence paid off in the ninth, the referee stopping the fight in his favour on the 2.14 mark after Magdaleno was badly cut over the left eye and his right eye was almost closed.
