1999-04-17 Jorge Arce w rsc 6 Salvatore Fanni, Sports Palace, Sassari, Italy - WBO. Referee: Manu Maritxalar. An entertaining little battle ended when Fanni (107½), hit with a straight right, received a bad cut over an eye in the sixth, the fight being brought to a conclusion by the referee on the 1.17 mark. Arce (107½) was ahead on all three judges’ scorecards at the time of the stoppage, despite being docked a point for a low blow, and had produced the better work, his punches packing more zip than those of his challenger.
