1964-12-11 [[Sandro Mazzinghi]] w pts 15 [[Fortunato Manca]], Sports Palace, Rome, Italy - WBA. Referee: Giorgio Tinelli. The first eight rounds were evenly balanced and despite the champion displaying greater speed and agility he was unable to get on top of Manca (152¾), who was always fighting back. Unfortunately, from thereon the contest developed into a punch-up as Manca began to use his right hand more and in the last round he almost got to Mazzinghi (153½) with vicious right hooks. Following the referee’s decision in favour of Mazzinghi, who should have stuck to his boxing instead of getting too involved, Manca felt that he might have done considerably better had he not injured his right hand in the days leading up to the fight.
